I have tested samba today but the speed was only 19MB/s (with MTU of 9000 on both sides), lower than 37MB/s as someone pointed out on his LS Live.
Could that be the problem with my hard drive, since with the default settings, the read speed of my hard drive is also like 20MB/s.
This really confuses me. If anyone had any experience with it, I would be very much appreciated with your suggestions.
Oh, I was using davy_gravy's image(version 0.3.1b) and his kernal 18.104.22.168.
sledgehammer, thanks for your inquisitiveness and insight... even if you seemed like you ended up answering your own question, it has confirmed something for us all. It seems that JumboFrames is the way to go...
You confirming what ahagge (thanks to him, also) had mentioned is useful, and seems to indicate that the slower network speeds with the vanilla ARM kernels can be improved drastically using the proper MTU settings.
Please, if others experiment with this, post your findings?! A lot of us have been pining for better speeds under the vanilla kernel. Maybe this is our answer/gateway.
EDIT: If possible, please list your kernel version, MTU setting, GbE card
on desktop/laptop that you are running the transfers to/from. I'm guessing also that number won't look as impressive if the network happens to have a single non-gigabit device on it(?).
