    Intel adapter teaming




      I have a problem with teaming Intel Pro/1000 MT dual port server adapter.


      As I described in the figure, I have two servers. Each server has Intel PRO 1000 MT Dual Port Server Adapter. They are connected directly with 1 Gb network cables. I have configured teaming feature (Team type: Static Link Aggregation). So, I have 2 Gbps link speed. (as expected). All network cards are running as "1 Gbps/ Full Duplex".


      Problem. When I send data from one server to another, I am getting only half performance. (Less than 50 %).

      I have analyzed performance of the network adapters and realized that for sending (also for receiving) operation it uses only one link.


      How can I get ~ 90% performance?


      Thanks in advance.
