I don't think so... if you are using fping, it pings each node once,
then it cycles back and pings each note again.  I think the minimum
time is something like 1 second, but with a lot of nodes to ping there
will be several seconds between two pings to the same host.

Also, not to bring up a "dead issue" if you have already been through,
but re duplex... keep in mind that a duplex mismatch at *any* Ethernet
interface in the path can kill your performance (IOW, don't just check
the server).
