Network Performance HOWTO
If your network throughput is less than you expect, follow these steps to ensure you are getting the best throughput possible:
- Make sure that the client and server end hosts are properly tuned.
- Determine your required and expected throughput.
- Verify that there is no packet loss on your end-to-end path.
- Use the right file transfer tool.
