I just wonder, is it possible (using Linux 2.6) to limit overhead done by ethernet interface to one specific core. Ie. I have core2duo CPU, and two ethernet interfaces: eth0 and eth1. Is it possible to move system load caused by packets comming on eth0 to CPU0, so the other core (CPU1) will be idle?
You probably don't want to do this, even if it is possible (which I'm sure it is, I haven't read the full article in the link).
