Here is brain drain...
I have dual PPro200 running linux, inside that I have VMWare NT4 server.
(Why? because I can!)
Now... the Linux OS is running 2 threads of DNET one per processor, the
VMWare NT4 Server is running 1 thread. So in all I have three threads
running. Using personal proxy Analyzer - I show the two "machines" Linux
and VMWare NT4 - 526204 (10.51%) and 520455 (10.36%) Key rate (overall
% of my network rate).
I would expect that with this setup it would run slower than Linux with only
two threads... Overhead for VMWare and NT... but in reality it comes out
about 2% greater.
I would love to know why... but I don't want it fixed, I like the little extra.
