We present an initial end-to-end performance evaluation of Intel's R £ 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) network interface card (or adapter). With appropriate optimizations to the configurations of Linux, TCP, and the 10GbE adapter, we achieve over 4-Gb/s throughput and 21-¤ s end-to-end latency between applications in a local-area network despite using less capable, lower-end PCs. These results indicate that 10GbE may also be a cost-effective solution for system-area networks in commodity clusters,
