Perf Compare 1 NIC in-out to 1 NIC in and 1 NIC out

I have a client that currently has a BorderManager 3.8 SP5 server set up
with only 1 NIC for proxy services.  They are not using it for a
firewall; just HTTP proxy.  Currently the 1 NIC is set for both the
public and private interface.  I want to change it to the more
traditional config of 1 NIC for the private interface that user
browsers point to and a second NIC for the public interface going out
to the Internet through a separate firewall.  

Intuitively it would seem that this would be a better performing setup.
I just wondered if anyone had done any testing on this and could
confirm that it would be better or have any other reasons why it would
be better.

Thanks,

Dan

It is a better setup.  But that doesn't mean that having only one NIC is 
a bottleneck.

Look at it this way - one nic can only service one packet at a time.  Two 
nics can do exactly double.  But, suppose that nic is a 1GB nic - still 
have lots more capacity than 100mb NIC's, which always used to seem fast 
enough.   And if you have a typical internet connection, of less than 
10mb, then where is the need to have more bandwidth on the LAN side?  
It's only going to apply to pulling data out of cache.

Suppose you have a 10mb Internet connection, and you saturate it with 
demand.  Subtract 10mb from your gigabit nic.  You now have only 
990mb/sec to work with.   You're not really going to notice much 
difference between a single and a double nic design in that situation.

Thanks, Craig.  I see what you are saying.  I am still going to do it
though as it still seems to me to be a better setup.

Why include LUNs in 1:1:1:1 ?

Presumably you still have a single RAID (5,10, whatever) group under it? Aren't you just putting more stress on the st...

BM with 2 public NICs and 1 private NIC
I've set up a BM3.8sp2a with 2 public interfaces (A & B) and 1 private interface (C). A is the NIC with slower connection but binds to a bunch of public IPs that are NATed to the internal servers. B has a faster connection and is used as default route. Things are fine without IPFLT. Let's say I want to connect to an internal server (Internal IP: W.X.Y.Z) from the Internet thru the NAT on NIC A... To do this, I set up two rules: 1.

for i = 1 to 1
I am new to PowerBuilder, so I am not 100% sure of the answer to this question. I found this for loop in a program: for i = 1 to 1 . I am thinking that that was someone's cute way of never executing this code, rather than the oh so obvious and easy way that powerbuilder allows you to comment out code. Anyway, the question is does the code in this for loop execute once or never? Thanks in advance for your help, Dawn Once, with the value i = 1. It's a cute way of doing something; what that something is, I have no idea. Wasting time? Driving up your code line count? &...

SeaMonkey 1.0.8 and 1.1.1
Hi localizers, Sorry for not informing you earlier on, but first we had to do a few respins and then I was too busy with the FOSDEM conference... Anyways, we're about to release the newest SeaMonkey security and stability update releases right now, with the version numbers 1.0.8 and 1.1.1 Due to our L10n freezes, both work with the language packs from earlier versions (1.0 or 1.1), but if you want binary builds up on FTP, you need to regenerate them for those versions. Both are already up in their respective release directories: http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozill...
