(fxp is the Intel 82588 Ethernet driver.)
Anybody else seeing these? What's going on?
I'm trying to see how much traffic I can cram through a network.
I get >90 megabits when running TCP in one direction. Things get
confused when I try to run (lots of) traffic in both directions.
I'm running a point-point link between a pair of Alphas. ifconfig
fxp0: flags=8c43<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,OACTIVE,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX full-duplex)
It also happens if I force both ends to 100/FDX (rather than letting
it autoselect) and in half duplex mode.
