How about the traffic on your LAN ? Did you find any time the packet drops ? You run “netdiag” to confirm no networking issues.
Sorry, still a no go,
I am working on a separate segregated LAN so there is no other traffic,
There are no packet drops that I am seeing,
The slowdown that I am seeing is only when seen in the simulator.
If I start an NFS server on the machine I can send and receive at full speed, and seeing as this seems to only be affecting write speeds (I can read w/ no problems) I am thinking this may be a purpose buld limit of the simulator.
I've got exactly the same problem, about 115MB/s when reading from netapp sim (iscsi, nfs) and 360-500kB/s when writing (iscsi,nfs), netapp simulator version 7.3.2, host os ubuntu 10.04 server, env VirtualBox with Host-only networking.
There's no way around this I'm afraid. It uses a file which is 2 MB in size - and even if you were to tamper with it (naughty naughty) and, say, symlink it to a larger ram disk in memory - you would probably find that the application detects this and comes back screaming about invalid nvram sizes.
It's a shame because it really does throttle the sim to death.
