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



So how about any irq conflicts? tried netcat from this machine to another and vice versa? duplexing/cabling problems? ----- Original Message ----- From: "Sally Janghos" <list_(_at_)_deeboz_(_dot_)_ca>

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
1000000+0 records in
1000000+0 records out

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?

seems that your test all involve disk io, check that first and narrow down
that it's a network or disk problem.  You may have a bum raid card, irq
conflict on the network card, any number of things.
