I noticed something today. I was ftp'ing an 8mb file from one box at home
to another using 10Mb/sec ethernet (thinnet, ie the coaxial cable stuff). On
one end I had an old ISA WD8003 card, on the other a newer 10/100 PCMCIA
card. Ftp reported:
8240199 bytes received in 25.2 secs (3.2e+02 Kbytes/sec)
So what happend to 10Mb/sec? Is the bottleneck in the cards, in the
drivers for the cards, or in the IP stack? Theres only 2 boxes (a third
isn't powered up right now) on the line, and the only connection between
them was a telnet connection.
Oh, both boxes are running RH5.2, stock kernels.
Its not a big deal. I was just curious.
