Finally picked up a second OM3 fibre so I can do a test run at 10Gb. Performance in one direction looks pretty good, but not so good in the other direction.

Running my threadripper workstation with the intel x710 as the iperf server net 7Gbps with the 9600k/solarflare NAS as the client. The other way around only got 3.5Gbps. Currently I've adjusted the Tx/Rx buffers on the intel card to their maximums but not made any changes to the solarflare as I'm less familiar with linux driver tweaks.

Why not schedule a restart of the Plex every couple of days ? It should be pretty easy to automate.

Since the reboot after installing the new NIC, plex memory usage seems to have remained reasonably constant.

I'm now chasing 10gig ethernet issues on the windows machines.

The windows 1903 update seems to have mostly resolved the issues I was seeing with iperf, though I'm still getting better speeds to the server than I do from it.

I bought some OM3 fibres from FS along with some LC-LC links for the wall boxes I got from RS a few months back. Wall boxes should be pretty resilient as the fibres will enter at the base of the boxes keeping the connection virtually flush with the wall to avoid breaking them.


Since I now have sufficient fibres for a proper test run, it'd be rude not to. Just a quick test to make sure all ports and fibres work ok, I connected the server with two links using the 3 avago transceivers I have. All working great, the juniper doesn't seem to mind the avago transceiver.


Quick file transfer test from my pc to the server. This is off an nvme ssd to avoid sata bottlenecks. Normal transfers will be a fair bit slower sadly but at least now I can have two pc's copying to the server and two tv's streaming from it without interruption.
