Thanks, this is the avenue i was heading down, I just didn't have all
the config details worked out in my head.  Any config related info you
can pass along would be appreciated.


I've heard of the mellanox solution, but I have to shoe horn this into
an existing machine where purchasing more hardware isn't an option at

just purchase something off the shelf...  i'm not a docker loving
millennial... :)
