Slow Transfer between Cisco Switch

Post by bigboss » Fri Nov 25, 2022 3:13 pm

Hi All.

Using EVE-NG Community version, I have this problem where I'm trying to transfer a large file (12gb) over from my Win 10 machine to my Win Server machine and in the middle is a Cisco L3 Switch, I seem to be transferring at such a low rate (300kbit/s). However when trying to transfer by directly connecting to both devices together, my transfers shoots up to 200mb/s. I also noticed that the Cisco switchport counters logs input errors and runts as well as output drops.

Any ideas as to what could be causing this problem?

Thanks.

Yes you're absolutely right! I did some trial and error tests and finally found Cisco IOL devices to perform much better with the transfer speeds. I did wonder if I should just buy the Pro version to avoid other issues. I feel like its more stable than community...
