So I thought I'd try to measure the throughput on our connection by copying files and I max out at about 1,2 MB/s (ie ~10 Mbit/s).
Server is connected to a 100 Mbit connection on external interface
Client connected to a 30 MBit connection using ip-https
The server has about 10 active users and never max out memory or cpu, but goes to about 30% cpu when I copy a large file
The external nic on the server shows ~1,3% usage on a 1GBit conection
Based on the above it looks to work just fine, slight overhead from iphttps.
How do I find out what is throttling the speed? Seems to be something on the server side? I have tried connecting over two different connections, same end result in download speed. It's not the backend fileserver, internally we get GB-speed copying the same file to the same client computer over the LAN.
