We run mm5 jobs here at the Univ of Utah. In our initial tests we found
mm5 to need a lower latency network then ethernet seems to offer. We
currently run over Giganet's VIA hardware at a 2x speedup over our
initial runs over ethernet. We also tested Myrinet, though an older rev
then the 2000 product, and found similar speedups. I can get you more
detailed info if you need it, let me know.
