I would like to carry out an experiment by bonding my new NAS dual SFP+ uplinks to see if I can sustain 20Gbit for how long with ZFS+nvme write cache enabled.
In the past I have benchmarked local hard disk ‘read’ speeds with linux pv but I haven’t done random write tests over the network… what do you guys suggest and how would you approach this experiment?
- NAS/server has 2x SFP+ nic
- Client has 2xSFP+ nic
- on the same L2 network (USW-Aggregation)
- Jumbo frames enabled on all ports
I think to setup bonding in unifi for each port but haven’t done so yet. Does bonding also require configuration on the OS side as well? any tips here would be appreciated.
