ive been chasing this problem around for about a week now. ive got a 7.0 betaX box that started out as a beta 1.5. no problems with anything.

then, i upgraded it (via cvs) to 2.0, and i instantly noticed a problem with serving the /usr volume via NFS to my laptop. moving my workstation to 3.0 didnt help either. the 7.0beta box showed outbound traffic about 200k. exact same behavior today, accessing it via SMB from an OSX mac.

strange thing is, when i use scp to transfer large files, they go at almost 200mbit. as far as i know, scp uses TCP only. but NFS and SMB, do they not use UDP? and if so, what can i do to try to troubleshoot how poorly UDP packets are working?

ive tried changing the cable, changing the switch port, and its the same thing each time. i have one other 7.0 server, thats not experiencing this either (but it also has a different ethernet card.

as i type this, im wondering if this could be related to the bge driver? i know many people have complained about bge in the past, and i never seemed to have noticed anything wrong with mine... but could that have changed for me as time passes and sourcecode evolves?

if anyone can help shed light on this, id really appreciate it.
