Today sugarlabs1 was not replying to pings at all.
I logged in through the console and restarted networking.
Now everything works fine, but I wonder what happened.

If we don't have room for all, please move only sugarlabs2.

regarding performance, a user reported sugarlabs4 being a lot slower
than the others.  So I ran my own CPU benchmark, and it turned out to
be slightly faster than the others.  Disk I/O might still be slower,
though, I don't know.

Thanks for all the work you're doing for us!
