Oh, interesting. arp_announce and arp_ignore. Thanks for the hint.
Ah, but those are only for physical interfaces and will even affect
so-called virtual interfaces (i.e., eth0:0).
How much more latency are you talking about? Using horm's method I was
able to transfer 9.8Gbps through a whole bunch of gridftp servers back
in '05 and the traffic on the director only increased 100-200kbps.
Granted, latency != throughput, all the time.
Ah, yes, now I'm starting to remember why horm's wrote the transparent
proxy stuff: arptables still wasn't available in RH kernels. Now that
it is, I may look at. But, I'm rather happy to keep my transparent
proxy stuff in iptables from days of yore, if it works.
Fermilab. Just zeros and ones.
