Then I used Wireshark to grab the traces of iSCSI and iperf and I

I first thought this was because of the small default value (8192) for
MaxRecvDataSegmentLength. So I increased that value to 262144. But in
a later test with 16ms rtt, I found the iSCSI throughput was only
improved by 0.7 MB/s and a lot of iSCSI PDUs were still divided into
1448 byte long TCP segments... So I think MaxRecvDataSegmentLength may
not be the reason.
Are you using jumbo frames?
