I am new to the Beowulf cluster computing and am awaiting UPS to deliver 
my systems.  I have been researching ECB and it seems to have mixed 
reviews regarding performance enhancement.  Would/Could someone shed 
some light on this topic to the following effect:

[1] Is it truly necessary?

[2] If using RedHat 7.2, should I re-compile the kernel?

Any and all assistance is truly appreciated!
