What approximate throughput are you seeing in the two cases? I would
guess that this has more to do with the bandwidth and latency, but
unless there are more dropped or reordered packets or something, I'm not
sure either way what we would see from the OpenAFS fileserver point of
view besides worse bandwidth/latency.
