Re: [K12OSN] Dual nic

You really need to do some resource usage monitoring to answer this
question.  What activities are slow?  What are my bandwidth, cpu, memory
and disk i/o utilizations when those activities are occurring?  What
gives me the most bang for the buck in eliminating those bottlenecks?
Is the cost worth the speed gain?  

If the real problem is disk i/o when everyone logs in, then adding
another nic is not what you want to do....

Things are ok, but would I tell a speed difference if I added another nic in my server? Has anyone tried this? I've got two nics now, one for internal and one for external traffic. I'm talking about adding a third one to help out with the internal traffic. Is it possible to boot terminals and configure dhcp to use two nics? I'm no expert so I thought I'd ask some experts =).
