Gigabit Ethernet under Solaris

Gigabit Ethernet under Solaris

Post by Oliver Lauman » Tue, 17 Nov 1998 04:00:00



Does Solaris 7 (on the Intel platform) support any Gigabit Ethernet
PCI adapters (preferably with 802.1Q)?  I couldn't find any in the
HCL, but maybe I didn't look in the right place.

Hi,

We have a Sun E4500, Solaris 2.6, with a gigabit nic installed.  

prtdiag:

            interrupts:  00000004
            compatible: 'SUNW,sbus-gem'
            model:  'SUNW,sbus-gem'
            has-fcode:  ' '
            version: '1.7'
            device_type:  'network'
            address-bits:  00000030

            name:  'network'

dmesg:
SUNW,sbus-gem0: Using Gigabit SERDES Interface

/kernel/drv/ge:
        Solaris 5.6 Sun Gigabit Ethernet 2.0, PatchID 106764-09

ndd settings:

lp_pause_cap  0

We have the switch port (Cisco 6500, i believe) set at 1000 fdx as
well.

The problem is this, inbound traffic gets only about a 6000 Kbytes/sec
rate, whereas the outbound goes at about 20000 Kbytes/sec.

Does anyone have any ideas why this would occur?  I've searched
Sunsolve and came up with nothing.

Thanks in advance,

Jamie
