comment Unable to print man pages from man -command
sorry for the late response. FP = floating point; INT = integer. It would be useful to have it translated into an INT if you were planning on using the output for another automated purpose(ie - piping a one liner or in a script).

comment Hardware and topology suggestions for iSCSI + GFS environment
1: We do have redundancy in the form of multipathing, seem my comment to randomwalter. We also have jumbo frames enabled on the SAN/switch/host. 2: This was the kind of info I was looking for. It seems like I should go mem and IO heavy on the GFS nodes, but not worry too much about CPU performance. 3: We do have jumbo frames enabled. We were going to enabled LAG, but it seems these switches only support 12 LAGs for an entire stack. This wasn't an advertised feature. On the TCP stack optimizations, I've never messed with that. Do you have any examples or links?

comment Hardware and topology suggestions for iSCSI + GFS environment
We do have redundancy, although not in the form of bonding. Currently all iSCSI connected hosts have 3 separate gigE paths to 3 separate switches. The SAN also has 3 separate gigE paths that connect to the same 3 switches. So we should have n+2 redundancy. n+1 would be acceptable if we went with 10gigE.

comment ECC chipkill errors: which DIMM?
I've not run into that issue either. Only used the utilities on DL380/5 and DL580/5 servers.

comment What is your list of programs to install to Windows after a fresh install?
+1 for putty over cygwin. I know cygwin is great for some, its just a personal preference. I recommend using Putty Connection Manager in conjunction with Putty: puttycm.free.fr
