Subject Re: What does a cluster throttled by the network look like ?

You are answering your own question here. If you are running at 80% of
network bandwidth, you are saturating your network.

AFAIK - most distributed databases are running on gigabit, not 100mb. I
recommend you upgrade your switch (and nics if necessary). Gigabit is
insanely cheap now. In the extremes, some distributed databases have
dedicated gigabit for internode traffic vs external traffic.
