[Spread-users] Spread and network performance ...

At my experience, spread does not load the CPU, but it
might flood the network. If your application is I/O
bound than it might effect its performance. When
spread is completely idle than the network overhead
should be small, but if you use it, there might be
some overhead( I've posted an email at this subject 
few days ago).
Just use ethereal (or any other tool) and see how many
UDP 4803, 4804 messages pass.
