That looks like a great option. It’s a little more than I’d hoped to spend, but also more than I expected to get for this price.

Can I ask, can you tell if it's using the tg3 driver, either with lsmod, or "dmesg | grep -i ethernet”, or “ethtool -i eth0”, or similar? If so, I see BQL support in that code, and it’s listed as having hardware timestamp support for PTP (http://linuxptp.sourceforge.net). Looks great...

I see a Gen 10 available here for slightly more with the same BCM5720 NIC, and a AMD Opteron X3216 instead, plus 8 gigs of RAM, which I don’t need really, but I can search more for similar hardware: https://www.alza.cz/hpe-proliant-microserver-gen10-d5127723.htm?o=1 <https://www.alza.cz/hpe-proliant-microserver-gen10-d5127723.htm?o=1>

Thanks for the tip!
