My network topology is structure.
2 WAN NetGear FVS124G --> Dell PowerConnect 2724
Wireless DLink DIR-625 -------|
Then all my internal wired equipment is connected to the PowerConnect, wireless goes through the DLink.
When I put this in place I was getting 60MB/s transfers from my laptop to server. (which is the speed of the HDs) Now I get about 15MB/s almost consistently over my entire network.
I tried power cycling the entire array and I'm now getting 38MB/s through iperf still only 15MB/s with scp. With a 1 GigBit Router I would expect it to be much higher since with a 100Mbit line I was getting 9MB/s transfers.
The Xen array I'm getting anywhere from 2-10MB/s, I know I have a problem there with the xen machines talking to each other.
Things that have changed:
I've reformatted the server into a pile of xen machines. All servers I've switched from DHCP (controlled by 172.29.0.2) to Static IP. Upgraded two of my four home computers to Fedora 9 from Fedora 8.
So my questions:
1. on a GigBit network what speeds are other people getting? Was my 60MB/s just a fluke and I'm looking for nothing?
2. Where do I start looking? Currently I'm still rebuilding the DB on my Xen array so I can't shut it off at the moment to see if it's the cause.
Can any one point me to some places to check?
