Has anyone looked at the performance-viability of small scale clusters (less
than 16 nodes) utilizing QLogic's 230x adapters and their SanBOX2 switches? 
We are looking to build a cluster that primarily runs serialized apps, or VIA
aware databases, which would benefit more from FC than say NFS/CODA servers
running over myrinet ?that had a FC backend, however we may look at
parallelizing some of the more compute intensive app servers.  Thoughts anyone?
