Since youâre dealing with the entire universe at the CGSA, I suspect your data sets are much larger than mine. *chuckle* Most of our inputs have no trouble
fitting in the systemsâ buffer cache and so N-1 jobs on N cores read them from there instead of the network (also I have âatimeâ turned off on the NFS mountpoints), and a lot of our systems have 10Gb since the Brocade switch per-port cost and the incremental
cost of an 10Gb HP FlexLOM hasnât been prohibitively high.
I gather in 8.6 network bandwidth will be a manageable resource â thatâll be nice.

I like depth-first owing as it is an anti-fragmentation tool, but breadth-first is, in my experience, better for input file transfers in the real-world because my storage can easily swamps the 1GbE network interface on an N-core machine
run N jobs.
