Thanks to all for the info.  It seems that running in AF_PACKET mode is a good starting point, as using 1 thread seems to have dropped me down to 10% packet loss.  However, when trying to increase the threads I get the error:

[ERRCODE: SC_ERR_AFP_CREATE(190)] - Coudn't set fanout mode, error Protocol not available

I see that kernel 3.2 is the minimum recommended in your tutorial, so I'm guessing my Red Hat 6 box with kernel 2.6.32 is gonna be a non-starter?
