our company just got a renderboxx renderfarm with dual xeon 3.06, and my boss is worried that those 5 renderboxx with screamer on (so 10 screamer) would slow the whole network down because screamer is pinging every seconds.

could screamer really slow down the network, (when it's in init or wait mode) ?
if it does, does anybody has a something to slove our problem?
should we use another switch box just for the renderboxx?
or something else?

thanks a lot!

I have a bunch of dual Xeon computers with screamernet running in 'init' mode while waiting to render. They do not seem to slow down our network at all.
