[Beowulf] Performance of SMC Gigabit switches

Would anyone on this list have experience using the SMC unmanaged switches
(specifically one of the SMC8505T, SMC8508T, SMC8516T or SMC8524T
switches). These seem to be inexpensive switches that claim to support
jumbo frames.

Before purchasing them, I am interested in finding out whether or not
these switches actually deliver close to gigabit/sec throughput in
practice.

Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks in advance,
- Kartik
