Is it something wrong or this is quite OK?
(The box is dual single core Opteron 2.4GHz with Myricom 10GE NIC.)
Every time a new generation of ethernet comes out, its peak throughput exceeds
the memory/CPU/IO capacity of commodity hardware available at the time. This is
normal. Of course, you may not be saturating the link, and it may be possible
to tune the driver to improve your throughput, but you'll still be saturating a
CPU on that hardware.
