Should anyone ask, the “forcedeth” driver is faster in one direction

server: 10.7.12.1

mediapc: 10.7.12.6

both MTU 9000

dd if=/dev/zero bs=1M count=1000 |nc 10.7.12.6 2222 >/dev/null

1048576000 bytes (1.0 GB) copied, 9.73707 seconds, 108 MB/s

nice.

dd if=/dev/zero bs=1M count=1000 |nc 10.7.12.1 2222 >/dev/null
1048576000 bytes (1.0 GB) copied, 56.6255 seconds, 18.5 MB/s

not so nice.

So much faster to copy data from server (nice intel gige) but sending data from media pc (Nvidia using reverse engineered “forcedeth”) is pitiful.

Interesting.
