http://code.google.com/p/irqbalance is 403 for me and I haven't been able to check.




Setting IRQ affinity for network controllers to either follow or not follow the "high priority" processes seems to do the trick.

And sometimes following ends up better (same cache), sometimes isolating ends up being better.
