I don't know what it is, if it's not faster that a 10/100/1000 ethernet  
card your best bet is to use 8 processors and 8 pools, leaving 2  
processors idle. Also, make sure that your outdir is set to some directory  
local to the nodes, e.g. /tmp, otherwise the overhead introduced when  
saving the restart data may kill the performance.
