Curious if anyone else has experienced this:
Network gets really slow, I've got a 100m local network connection:
xl0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
[ snip ]
media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
But, when I copy files via NFS especially, but also sftp.. I get around
1-2 mbyte/sec. This is slower than the airport on a mac, claiming to be
about 1/10 the speed.
If I reboot the machine, or issue this command:
ifconfig xl0 down ; ifconfig xl0 up
Performance returns to about normal (although I still experience lockups
with NFS from time to time.. been scratching my head about that for a
while, can't seem to find the problem)
Is there a problem with some network drivers?
What gets freed up/reset with 'ifconfig down' that might explain why it seems
to temporarily fix the problem?
Please post the dmesg of boot -v
