Well. Depends on the $$ it will take to get SM81. Main reason to get
this machines was to get SNMP baby! ;-) Speed doesn't matter that much.
If I wanted a fast SMP machine I would have looked for a Ultra 2 or
faster CPUs for my AlphaServer 2000 (that has only a single 4/200).

Ahhh, module-info is the command I was looking for:
ok module-info
MBus  :  50 MHz
SBus  :  25 MHz
CPU#0 :  60 MHz SuperSPARC / SuperCache 2.x

Yes, just as the "The Rough Guide to MBus Modules" toled me. I relpaced
the SM51 with the SM61 from the sun 4/600MP board and now I have 50 MHz
MBus and 25 MHz SBus speed.

I located a bunch of 16 MB DIMMs for 1,-EUR on ebay.de...

Payment is the real problem. I have no credit card (not that common in
germany) and no paypal account. I'll think about it.
