pypy uses /tmp to put its source files so I don't know if 5gb is enough.

Why not use both sockets for benchmarking? Either put 2 interpreters
on each socket (cpython+jython in one and pypy+ironpython in the
other) or use one of the sockets to run the benchmarks on
windows/freebsd. I think more granularity in the benchmarks is
interesting to find regressions, and the performance of interpreters
in different oses might be very different also (ironpython running on
.net, different jvm etc).

Besides this two points I think everything looks ok to me (but I don't
know much about sysadmin). Some people have a lot of scary stories
about RAID5, but I think this is mostly a problem with old RAID
