Slow transfer rate on VLAN with HP 1Gb Ethernet Pass-Thru Module for c-Class C7000

Slow transfer rate on VLAN with HP 1Gb Ethernet Pass-Thru Module for c-Class C7000

Hi,

I have a C7000 infrastructure and two BL460c G6 with four NIC (two: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme II BCM57711E 10-Gigabit PCIe + two: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5715S Gigabit Ethernet (rev a3))

For connect server to my network I use the module "HP 1Gb Ethernet Pass-Thru Module for c-Class".

I have tested the speed with iperf between physical eth and I reach 940 Mbits/sec, but if I test the speed with iperf on a VLAN (on the same physical eth) I reach 15 Mbits/sec.

 

Why this behavior?

The firmware on the On Board Administration is 4.22 and the firmware on the pass-thru module is 3.0.3.

The switch I use is an Hp 2510 with the following (simplified) config:


; J9279A Configuration Editor; Created on release #Y.11.16

 

[...]

vlan 508
  untagged 1-6,15-19,21-24,Trk1-Trk2
  ip address (x.x.x.x) 255.255.255.0
exit
vlan 506
  name "VlanRSE6"
  tagged 23-24,Trk1-Trk2
exit
[...]

 

On both server running Debian and the network configuration is:

 

Server1:~# cat /etc/network/interfaces
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address 10.9.8.1
netmask 255.255.255.0
gateway 10.9.8.254

auto vlan506
iface vlan506 inet static
