Let's assume I have N hosts (on the same subnet) which perform this. These hosts
have a shared database which contains some information how to manipulate the IP
header. The database entry is inserted when the first packet arrives to any of
How fast is Mnesia to make the new information be available on the other hosts?
Are we talking about M*100 milliseconds or M seconds or M*10 seconds here?
The reason I'm asking this is that, if/when the second packet for the same
session arrives on any other host, it can't do anything unless it first finds
the information within the database.
