Thanks for putting these numbers online. I took a quick glance at the usual
values and have to admit that I am not really impressed - a minimal latency
of about 15us is not exactly state of the art.
However, it seems that Skampi produces "different" numbers than other
benchmarks (as usual...). Do you have numbers for mpptest available? And what
about running 2 processes per node?
