how to troubleshoot network speed?
mandriva user here. not an admin by any means but i can muddle
through with help.
i have a small network set up to process timelapse photos i've
been shooting. i capture on an xp box and use a small mandriva
box as an admin station between the xp box and a couple of
other mandriva boxes which do the processing.
i have samba set up on all of the mandriva boxes. on the mandriva
admin box, i log into all the others and copy files to the
processing boxes from the xp box.
it's a gigabit network but my transfers seem very slow. how
would i begin to troubleshoot the speed issue?
one bit of info, there is also a macpro in the network. when i
manually grab files using the macpro, the speeds seem much better.
the transfers are handled by a bash script when initiated from
the mandriva admin box.
the admin box is an old p3 i think.
the processing boxes are all p4's
all have matching trendnet gigabit ethernet cards.
thanks for any tips on how to get started sorting out the
