Dl580 G7 With Hewlett-Packard Company NC552SFP 2-port 10Gb Server Adapter speed slow

I have 2 DL580 G7 machines with RHEL 6.7

I Hope we can get 300MB/s.

But I only get 138MB/s

Hello , 

 

you may try updating the driver (first) and than the NIC Firmware. 

https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=5154775&swItemId=MTX_0350344c56ba409297d816cf89&swEnvOid=4184#tab1

https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=MTX_7b541949a9574bbfb8f94d9ae9#tab1

 

 

In addition to that, make sure you are using propper cables, list with supported options here:

https://h20195.www2.hpe.com/v2/getpdf.aspx/c04148619.pdf?ver=17 

 

You may also test the performance port to port (port one of the NIC connected to Port 2 of the same NIC) or connecting a lap top in order to exclude additional network issue in your environment. 

 

 

Best Regards
