My network administrator noticed similar things coming from my small cluster.
After a bit of investigation, it seems that if a node goes down in a Mosix
cluster, all the other nodes arpflood with who-has requests. It became such a
pain that I only enable the cluster after working hours, so as not to flood
others' connections.

While on the subject of mosix, same network admin mentioned that MPI/PVM may
run into trouble on the cluster. Any thoughts on that?
