One of the clusters I manage globally is a tiny 34
node HP cluster (SMP dual-core Opteron though) which
is basically a single user cluster kept running at
almost 100% of capacity. There are enough changes
happening this morning that rsyncing, parallel copy,
etc just becomes onerous so I am turning on NIS today
for it.
