I find the performance of the Xeon somewhat disappointing. I expected it to
be a somewhat better. I am running a PII-350 and am getting 980K kps. What
is the speed of the processors? If they are running 400Mhz that it would be
about right. I expect you are lousing some performance due to the
multi-processor communications. I am also assuming that it was using 2
processors instead of 4.
You can stop processing on your laptop and copy your buffer files to a safe
location. Copy the buffer files from the Xeon box to your RC5 directory and
perform a flush. Then copy your original laptop buffers back to the RC5
directory and start processing where you left off.
