I am sorry I did not realized your replies because been making the print screen
Don't use jumbo frames.
That's just adding more pain to this than you need. The jumbo frames will make a minute difference at best. Just run with what you have.
Gigabit networking will likely bring your speed up to ~100MBps. At this point, as Budman observed, you are more likely to be capped by your computers hardware than the network.
Just set it up, stop thinking about it so much and just do it.. This is a basic thing.
Ok, Thanks a lot for you and for all other good people input in this thread, really saved us a lot of money indeed for a consultant.
EXACTLY - talk about mulling over every insignificant detail there is ! --
it is just I am really worry for getting started then have a problem ... but I will listen to your advise my friend.
2 switches or 1 ? WOW - by using 1 you saved yourself an entire .00000001 seconds !
Dont need to be a network guru to understand things like that.
I am sorry, but please, do you say that as an example to clear your idea to do not worry about details?
Or you mean for real that using two switches and bridge both of them will almost make no differences?
Thanks for this tip and sorry if I am asking silly or stupid question ... please be patient
If you get near 100MB/sec - you are moving files unbelievably fast over ethernet - even if it peaks @ 70MB - be happy & dont sweat pointless details that will only show a benefit if you did it 24/7 over the next 10 years.
That would be really amazing thing to be achieved and I never ask for something more indeed.
Curious, what kind of business is this ?
It is as I mentioned on the beginning of the thread here
We are a small media producing company that are working under short term contracts out sourced for some local TV channels to record its shows on a daily base and do video encoding to various format like .avi, .rm, .flv, .mp3 … and upload it to famous websites plus a .mpeg copy to be given to the channel itself.
