Test System Setup
Today we're using one of our NAS multi-client test systems to connect to all eight ports of the Netgear GSS108E eight-port Click Switch. To test the switch, we passed data through each port in both directions at the same time.
Benchmarks - Port to Port Throughput
Here we see two test results. The green line shows one computer sending IxChariot's ultra-high performance workload to another. The second test shows the same workload running in both directions. When running the bidirectional transfer, we did observe a small loss in performance. The second test shows the average of both transfers.
Benchmarks - Full Mesh Throughput Average
For this set of tests, we use every port on the switch, and pass data to and from the ports. The mesh looks like this:
10.0.10.5 -> 10.0.10.6
10.0.10.6 -> 10.0.10.7
10.0.10.7 -> 10.0.10.8
10.0.10.8 -> 10.0.10.9
10.0.10.9 -> 10.0.10.10
10.0.10.10 -> 10.0.10.11
10.0.10.11 -> 10.0.10.12
10.0.10.12 -> 10.0.10.5
The large drop in performance at the start of the test should be ignored. The test starts with one transfer, and then ramps up another pair milliseconds later, until all pairs are transmitting data. The scores are still averaged for all transfers, and not just what is transferring data at the time.
