Have you run mx_pingpong between the nodes to determine what raw
performance you are getting?
For each pair of machines, run:
$ mx_pingpong -s
$ mx_pingpong -d foo -S 0 -E 5000000 -M 2
where "-d foo" means the MX hostname of foo. It could be foo or foo:0
(or foo:1 if you have two NICs, etc.).
See http://www.myri.com/serve/cache/455.html for more details.
Repeat the above after setting MX_RCACHE=1 on both hosts.
