Hello everybody!

Have anybody play with bonding on SMP system ?
I just test it on my system and have interesting results:

1) Configuration : proc : Xeon 2.4
                         net  : 2 Gigabit Ethernet (bonding mode balance-rr)

well, for testing i used NetPerf
and test UDP stream with packet size = 1024 byte

result :
run 1 copy of program - bandwidth around  1900 Mbit/sec - GOOD

run 2 copy of program  - each copy has about 940 Mbit/sec - GOOD

2) Configuration : 2 proc - Xeon 2.4
                         net : 2 Gigabit Ethernet (bonding mode balance-rr)

result :
run 2 copy of program - each copy has 940 Mbit/sec - GOOD

run 1 copy - bandwidth *ONLY* 1500 Mbit/sec - What wrong ???

btw : my OS linux 2.4.22
