Thanks for the suggestions. Our slaves have 12G with 10G dedicated to 
the JVM.. too much?

Are the rysnc snappuller featurs still available in 1.4.1? I may try 
that to see if helps. Configuration of the switches may also be possible.

Also, would you mind explaining your second point... using dual NIC 
cards. How can this be accomplished/configured. Thanks for you help
