    intel pro/1000 GT quad port server adapter - slow performance with teaming

    wildhare

      When I enable teaming on pro/1000 GT network performance drops from 70-100 mb a sec to about 6-8 mb a sec doing a file copy

       

      I also have a pair of pro/100 EB nics in this server when teaming these performance is fine.

       

      running Server 2008r2, any thoughts?

       

      Thanks,
      Dave

          Here are some thoughts that might help narrow things down.

           

          Is the slot a PCI-x 64-bit slot? Is the PCI slot speed set to a lower speed? Do you have another slot you can try to see if another slot makes a difference.

           

          What kind of team and how many and what ports are you teaming with? Have you tried a different team mode to see if that makes any difference?

           

          What model server motherboard do you have? You might be running into a system bottleneck. Are separate interrupts and system resources assigned to each port?
