max throughput on 100mbit nic card

Post by Kirk Met » Thu, 01 Jul 1999 04:00:00



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
9.8meg/sec.

        Thanks,
                Kirk

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

max throughput on 100mbit nic card

I have reached 1060 KBytes/sec on 10 MBps: ftp from HP-UX to a PCI card.
(on a file of more than 100 MB, so during more than 100 seconds).

On 100 MBps I get 5 MBytes/sec: not the same percentage, but quicker.

Cheers, Santiago.

1. Out of interest, max throughput of NICs

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
have
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 :)
