Re: Gig1 speed - disappointing


[re: jchamier] [link to this post]
 
I did say longer than I care to remember (which means can actually remember), and was I missing something.

Was going to check on my old Lenovo N500 laptop, but then remembered it only had 100Mbps network port when it hit about 98Mbps in Iperf3.

Interesting what you say about the i3, I'll have to check to see if that still goes for the i3 10100 as was considering that for my updated server.

Should be fine if you're not considering full disk encryption. My company forces this on desktops and laptops, but not servers. Many of my customers deployed early i3 Win7 based desktops which were significantly faster than the Core2Duo's being used by XP of the era. Call centre type applications!

My corporate Core2Duo laptop with 4GB RAM and a SATA 2 SSD was stuck at 99% CPU when copying files over the Ethernet port in XP days. The encryption products were all very new and from third party security companies, not built in to the operating system as they are today.

I saw a recommendation for this tool, but I have not yet tried it at home.

I do have that installed, seems to work well but not sure if it can run parallel threads like Iperf3

The servers just for document storage, TV server and handling encrypted back ups to off site storage overnight. The i3 10100 does have AES instructions.

Download the Ubuntu ISO from the following link and report back the download speeds.

Also can you post your power levels etc in this thread?

Some i3's have AES-NI, the 10100 certainly does,

Looking at the list of Intel CPU's with AES-NI sorted by date order It looks like from 4th gen onwards it started being a lot more common for the i3's to have it, before that I see the odd one or 2 but not a lot.

Did you get this problem solved?

How old is the desktop computer?

Do you have any other devices capable of downloading?

If you do then max out your download speed on the desktop computer and while that is downloading get a 2nd device to download something too, and see if the speed to your desktop drops. This will show if its the desktop limiting its download speed (the speed wouldn't drop) or if the router speed distribution is the problem it would share the 400mbps between the 2 devices.
