was not supposed to go to the mailing list, but I did not see the list on my "to"

But now that the cat is out, if you are using Linux in a networked environment and
have some time available, please check out http://www.cup.hp.com/netperf/, the
netperf home page. Netperf is a cross-system, cross-OS, cross-network
architecture benchmark. There are very few Linux numbers in there, so if you
feel like joining, your contribution would be very much appreciated.
