Hmm... I must've missed that comment - I'll have a dig around before I
start shifting load on next week. (Ramping up slowly as you'd imagine)
BTW, what's the largest load anyone out there on the list has put on these
sorts of systems? We're looking to have a sustained level of traffic at
around 50-70Mbit/s (*) between all the servers - spread over a couple of
geographic locations for about 10-15 hours per day shortly, and hence the
interest in this aspect.

  (*) Or in terms of user requests 30 Million per day + 20-25 Million per
      day generated by our servers - to origin servers and their ilk.

Also has anyone tried this using 2 or more masters - each master with it's
own IP? (*) From what I can see theoretically all you should have to do is
have one master on IP X, tunneled to clients who recieve stuff via tunl0,
and another master on IP Y, tunneled to clients on tunl1 - except when I
just tried doing that I can't get the kernel to accept the concept of a
tunl1... Is this a limitation of the IPIP module ???

  (*) This way we give the clients multiple parents in the evnt of
      catastrophic failure, that can and does happen.
