tuning gigabit ethernet and IP stack??

Post by chuc » Sat, 22 Dec 2001 12:52:31



I'm having a hard time getting more than 60 mbps out of a gigabit
ethernet adapter and aix 4.3.3.09 on a 7017-S80.

entstat -d ent1 doesn't show any problems.  The usual items in <no -a>
have been pumped up some.

any hints?

Are you running jumbo frames?  If not, you're probably going about
