I'hv a network question about my FC5 installation. Must highlight that this installation is virtually on VMserver (which hosts on a Windows 2003 server). Yet, the VMware network configurations is using Bridged. It should be using the most (if not whole) bandwidth of the network cable since this is the only instance running on the server.
Let's forget that this on VM (assuming this is not the root cause). I find the network SENT speed is only HALF of that of the RECEIVED speed.
Test: I connected to a Windows 2000 share using SAMBA. If I copy a moderate size folder of 10MBs to the Windows share, the FC network SENT speed is max. at about 1.4MiBs (seen from System Monitor). If copy from the share back to the FC, the network RECEIVED speed is max. at about 2.8MiBs.
Any idea why the received speed and send speed has such difference? Any parameters I can tune? Thanks a lot!
