Speed up my 10G connection?

SSD Sean
 Share

I got two Aquanta 10GbE NICs off Amazon recently for all that 10GbE goodness. I have multiple NVMe SSDs/RAID arrays in my NAS and desktop. Both feature Windows 10 Pro. I connected both directly to one another via a 15m CAT6 cable. Sending data from a 1TB Samsung 970 EVO in my desktop to an enterprise NVMe SSD in my server I get full 1.15GB/s transfer speed. But transferring from the NAS to the desktop I get like 800MB/s or so to any of my drives, which can write at over 1.2GB/s without an issue when doing transfers locally on the desktop system itself. 

 

Anyone know what settings I need to adjust to fix this? I should be getting 1.15GB/s both ways since storage isn’t the bottleneck, right?  

 

So so far I set RSS to 8 and jumbo frames is set to 9014 or whatever the number is (not home at the moment to double check).

What is your raid setup on each machine? How much ram do you have on each machine? I have a theory, but need more information.

Writing from a NAS to your desktop you will never get theoretical speeds. There is other stuff windows is doing on top of TCP which in it self has a delay which affects your speeds.

So I did some testing and to simplify things well use the following config: 

Desktop: X99 + Intel DC P35201.2TB

NAS: Z87 + Toshiba PX04 3.2TB

 

When writing a 15GB movie from Desktop to NAS or From NAS to Desktop I get a transfer speed of 1.15GB/s. 

 

But, when reading from NAS to Desktop or From Desktop to NAS, I get a transfer speed of 800-900MB/s.

From what I can tell you haven't given me any information on your raid setup. I asked because some raid setups prioritize write speed and others read speed. Then you have raid 0 which increases both equally.

I am aware. I have a Microsemi SmartRAID 3154-24i with 8x HGST Ultrastar SS300 SAS 12Gb/s drives in RAID 0 on the Desktop
