How are you testing the speed and what makes you think it specifically
gets 8 mb/s? Do you have another SLES/SUSE box on which you can setup
the other side of a connection? What do you have between this machine
and the other machine when you do your speed test (goes along with what
you're using for your speed test)?

Good luck.

Hi,
this is going through a 1GB switch to a new lacie 2bignetwork (2tb raid
storage - raid 1).
Transferring about 900gb of data from bad drive to lacie box.
When using windows, transfer speeds easily hit 80-100mb per second.
When using sled, transfer speeds are way down. I've used ethtool to
set nic speed to 1gb, full duplex and no auto-neg.
However, transfer speeds are still painfully slow.
What else can I do to make speeds close to win7 speeds?
Using FTP to transfer the 900gb of data. For now doing small folders
due to slow speeds.

Oskar

You're transferring from a "bad drive" and that's not your prime
suspect? Let's try this; I assume you have a bit of space on /dev/shm
so we'll pretend you have at least 1 GB there:

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/shm/onegib.out bs=1048576 count=1024

Now that'll take a few seconds to create usually and once done try
FTP-ing up from here to your other machine.

cd /dev/shm
ftp yourServerHere
binary
put onegib.out

Let's see how that goes.

It may also be interesting to find the biggest file you can find on your
machine's hard drive and see how quickly you can read it:

dd if=/path/to/your/big/file of=/dev/null

Post the output, please.

Good luck.

the workstation drive is a new sata drive!
the drive I'm transferring from is from a raid 1 that I've mounted on
the hp workstation running sled via mdadm --assemble --scan.
The raid 1 drive is fine as is the new sata drive which is where win7
and sled11 are installed on.
Please don't forget that win7 transfer speeds are FAR superior to the
sled11 speeds (on same box).
My question is why is this happening as well as how can I make sled11
software transfer files as fast as win7?

Thank you,
Oskar

Please send the results from my previous post. They apply regardless of
the functionality of your drives. The reason I focused on the drive is
because you wrote:

"Transferring about 900gb of data from bad drive to lacie box."

Good luck.

Well that shows that your server is definitely working well into gigabit
speeds. The maximum speed you could even theoretically (not
realistically) get on a 100 Mbit network is 12 MB/s and you're getting
36. Why you are not getting up into the 80s and 90s I'm not sure but
these speeds are already gigabit speeds and are definitely nowhere near
the 7mb you claimed originally.

The original instructions would have had you put the files in /dev/shm.
If you put it there for your upload (FTP) tests (vs. using the
onegib.out file that was in your user's home directory) then the biggest
bottleneck would probably be the other side's ability to write the data
or something limiting the wire speed.

As a last point, be sure you're on the latest patches (SP1 plus post-SP
patches). There were some issues with drivers (I'm told) a while back
that should all be resolved.

Good luck.

Hi,
I'll look at installing the latest SP and see how that works.
Thank you for your advice!!
