Re: Where to troubleshoot Intel PRO/1000 performance problems?



Aaron,

  Thanks for your reply.  Here is some output from some dd's on the disk that I'm reading/writing to.  

> dd if=/dev/zero of=testfile count=1000000;dd if=testfile of=/dev/null

  Am I reading right, the max network transfer rate from this disk will be between 143Mbit and 246Mbit/sec?  Is there a way to determine if there is an IRQ conflict?  How do you find out what IRQ's are currently used by the system?
