Dear All,

A quick technical question: on a stateless Beowulf cluster running mainly
(if not exclusively) NAMD, with each node having two gigabit interfaces,
which of the following two models would you recommend:

 * One interface dedicated to management (NFS, warewulf, ...), the second

 * Channel-bond the interfaces and let it rip.

Any comments or past experiences gratefully received,
Best regards,
