Out of interest, max throughput of NICs

Post by G.Fenstermache » Tue, 20 Oct 1998 04:00:00

I know, I know.. Its says "10Mbit" on it, but what are the actual practical
speeds you
achieve with these?

I saw a little something in the Ethernet HOWTO about speeds, but does anyone
some good ideas?

IE, what sort of throughput does a 16bit ISA board have? In a 486dx2/33? In
a faster 60mHz bus pentium?

I'm just trying to figure this out now :)




1. max throughput on 100mbit nic card

Hi all,

        What is the max through-put that anyone has seen for a 100mbit card.  I
realize that the theoretical max is around 12.5 meg per sec, but I doubt
that is ever reached.  For those wondering why, my company is
considering the purchase of a giga-bit fiber card for one of our NFS
file servers.  So far the max I've seen going through our card is


please reply via email and post to the newsgroup if possible.
remove the obvious bits from my email to make it valid.
