Looks like we'll probably be spinning our own "minimal" OS from FC or
CENT OS. Perfect timing, actually ... we need to "look busy" right
now. Thanks for all the input. To clarify the setup, in case more
input gets posted: We use 1 router per Blade Chassis in each rack (up
to 3). Most of them have 4-6 NIC's, and others have 8-10, depending on
the test plan.
thnx again everyone.
