SubjectLinux 2.2.16/Tulip Smartbits testing.
Date

Hi,

we've been running some throughput tests (Smartbits
test box) using Donald Becker's tulip.c:v0.92 on Linux 2.2.16,
on a Pentium 3 800Mhz and a 4 port Dlink DFE-570TX see log below.
Basically Smartbits allows one to set the packet size, speed, protocol,
etc. For example if you start at 64 byte size packets and set
an initial rate of 20Mb/s and a max of 80 Mb/s it goes
up and down until it finds the optimum rate. At the moment
w're trying some UDP tests.

The problem is that as the rate increases, the number of
packets received decreases until is goes to zero, then for all
further iterations of that 64 packet size test, no matter
how slow the rate gets, the number of packets received is always
0. It does not recover from being flooded until the Smartbits moves to
the next packet size, performs learning frames and then the same
eventually thing happens again.

Has anybody ever run any tests like this before ?
Is it a driver or a kernel issue ? Any ideas ?

Performance also looks pretty bad for the smaller packet sizes
but does improve as the packet size increases.

We're just trying to figure out why absolutely no packets
are received no matter how slow the rate gets.

thanks in advance for any help,

John.
