Tyan i7500 motherboards contain built-in Gigabit Ethernet and Fast
Ethernet. What are the best ways to utilize these additional resources in
the system that will contain Myrinet interconnect as a base communication
infrastructure. Are there any substantial advantages to link the nodes via
additional Etherner or Gigabit switch to get substantial speed up of
communication traffic? Does this require additional software/hardware? Are
there any problems with this solution?
