Are you using TCP and/or iSCSI offload in your NIC? Those seem like pretty good numbers.

This reminds me of a question that I was going to ask. I'm spec'ing up a Dell server and they have a "Broadcom® NetXtreme II 5709 Dual Port 1GbE NIC with TOE and iSCSI Offload". Does anyone have any idea on how to enable the iSCSI offload under Linux? Or does it "just work"?
