I have had a 10Gbe network at my home for sometime now, I am using the NETGEAR 8-Port 10G, Cat7 cables all the way. I have 4 devices hooked up to the network:
- Router (Running PFSense) - Dell Dual 10Gbe NIC
- R710 Server - Dell - Dual 10Gbe NIC
- Synology Diskstation DS1817 - Built in Dual 10Gbe Nic
- Desktop PC - Single Asus 10GBE Nic
When I do an iPerf3 test between any two of the devices (with the exception of the NAS as I can't), I get somewhere between 2Gbits/sec to 2.9Gbits/sec.
I have seen videos where people get faster speeds, in fact, near 10gbe.
Why can't I? What is my bottle neck? Is it my switch, and if so how can I tell?
Here are some screen shots of my Dell Server:
What can I do next to determine why my speed is slow?
