Hi, I’m trying to understand what could be the culprit of “low” speeds (for gigabit connection) on my pi <-> macbook.
Here’s the scenario: my pi is connected through USB 3.0 to a NAS drive, as well as to a SSD (for OS). When I download stuff from the internet to the pi (which goes directly into the NAS drive) it caps my provider speed (~ 22 MB/s writing), so that’s ok here.
However, when downloading something to my MacBook Pro from the pi (NAS drive as well) it can’t go over 20 MB/s. Everything is connected with Cat6 cables and 20 MB/s is quite below the gigabit speed. I don’t see what’s causing the bottleneck here.
Edit: I also noticed that when copying from the NAS drive to the Mac the pi temperature gets around 60º and keeps there (is the pi throttling the speed to prevent warming up? and why when downloading form the internet doesn’t it get that warm since the speeds are the same?)
On the raspberry. Somehow, today, I can’t go past 500 Mbps either way, but yesterday it was going beyond 900.
CPU usage seems ok.
Edit: it was using the wifi IP instead of lan when I couldn’t go past the 500 Mbps. That explains the speed cap of 500 Mbps, however it doesn’t explain why the speed goes above 900 Mbps in on way but not reverse. So:
