Sosnowski, Maciej - Feb. 26, 2009, 10:05 a.m.
Upcoming server platforms from Intel based on the Nehalem performance
have significantly improved CPU based copy performance.
However, the DMA engine can still be effective at higher I/O sizes
for TCP traffic and at this time copybreak
should be set to 256k for TCP traffic only.
