I'm using a pair of IBM x345 with 4GB RAM and 2.66Ghz SMP for my LVS
directors.  I am using LVS-NAT in order to do port translation and was
concerned initially about poor LVS-NAT performance.

I'm happy to report that LVS-NAT is NOT the bottleneck in my
environment.  The surprise for me has been the somewhat poor performance
of Oracle9i/AS on my real servers, despite the beefy x445 hardware used

Suffice it to say I have MANY visitors and LVS-NAT has thankfully moved
toward the bottom of my list of worries.
