The FE handbook isnt too clear on this, but it does say the following:
5.One CPU per port is recommended for maximum throughput.
6.Two CPUs per QFE/P are recommended for >=200MHz systems.
I have seen limits imposed on other cards, though (both PCI and Sbus). For
example, I've seen Sun docs state that you can put only 3 dual channel
SCSI cards in certain systems (I think I'm thinking of the netra 1405.)
