    i recently replaced my home fileserver hardware with an athlon 900 with an intel 100baseT network interface. I found my fileserver running debian potato could not perform more than about 4meg per second on a direct connection to my main workstation (athlon 700 w 512mb of ram running Debian as well). I tried to reset some of the IP variables in /proc to no avail.

    I have a friend that lives and breaths FreeBSD so upon his insistence gave it a shot (FreeBSD 4.4). I now get a full 9.8 meg per second which is really close to the theoretical limit.

    So my question / statement is how can they (Zuma Networks) achieve full network through put on a linux kernel ? I would personally prefer to use debian (its more inline with my personal belief’s ) but at the same time its just a tool and if my tools don’t perform i get another one.

    Anyone experience the same thing ?

    Anyone with network throughput tuning information on potato ?
