we've found that the TCP and UDP performance on 2.4 is *dramatically*
better than 2.2. with the acenic gig-e driver on PIII-933 UP (66MHz x
64bits PCI) we are getting 993 Mb/s with 2.4.0 with jumbo frames (about
850 Mb/s with standard ethernet frames). the best number we got with 2.2
was about 650 with jumbos and 550 with standard.
i'd recommend it's networking performance to anyone.
