    12 '''April 30, 2008:''' I have been busy with the hardware aspects of the project. The goal is to improve packaging. The result is that the entire [wiki:NorbertLimulus Norbert Limulus Cluster] now fits in a single case measuring 23x20x8.5 inches (58x51x21 cm). It uses a single power supply, is very power efficient, quiet, and looks rather cool. There will be more real soon. The first version will use quad-core CPUs for a total of 16 cores per system. Also, there has been some concern about using non-ECC memory. Based on current memory technology, actual tests, and some research papers I do not think this is going to be a concern for most users. More information when the tests are done.

    1414'''October 22, 2008: ''' I have posted the new [http://basement-supercomputing.com/download/benchmarks/Intel-PT-PCIe/#update-10-22 results] and the issue with Jumbo frames was due to flow control in the NICs. I used ethtool to turn off flow control and was able to see the expected performance boost for larger frames, the variability seemed to get worse however. I'll be writing this up and posting it on [http://www.clustermonkey.net ClusterMonkey] real soon. Also, [http://open-mx.gforge.inria.fr/ Open MX 1.0.0] has been released.
