Agreed on the "filling the 100Mbit pipe" comment. Even a well-stocked
SS5/170 or a middle-of-the-road Ultra 2/300 will have issues(used both
in high-traffic network filtering). They're good as a workstation or a
lightly loaded server, but don't try to run a ton of traffic on them.
Replaced those with something more capable and noticed a good sized jump
in speed with the same underlying infrastructure.
