Last issue to resolve before I can migrate from CrucibleWDS to CloneDeploy. Website has been offline a good few days so was worried.
When using Unicast I get 8GB per minute, when trying to Multicast I get 20kb/per minute (about 1000 + hours to complete) or the multicast doesn't even start and all systems hang awaiting the "start" signal or something.
I have tried without a blocksize and tried with --blocksize 600.
Same switches / network / systems I use for the room of 16 devices as Crucible but the CD Server is a much higher spec system.
I have only removed the energy saving features on the NIC and matched any to the old system but there could still be outstanding tweaks on this too.
I've tried different PXE Kernals as well and didn't notice a difference.
Where could I be going wrong?
- I believe although server is at 1GB at the nic that switch ports are hard-set to 100mb for the 16 devices, that said CrucibleWDS is using exact same ports but has a slower NIC at server end and I get about 700MB per minute Multicast and about 1.2GB per minute Unicast. (on the oldest and slowest devices, same used for this testing)
