Hi,

I think you saw this readout https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/ ... erver-2019. Also, make sure you are testing performance in multiple threads. Let me know if you need assistance.

actually I hadn't. I re-looked at my linux vms and realized they defaulted to 1 cpu. I bumped to 4 and ran again. still 4-6 gb/sec. I then tried again with 4 parallel threads and now see an aggregate of 20 gb/sec! is it the case that multiple iscsi sessions in your linux guest will use separate kernel threads? if so, I think we've solved this! in which case, many thanks!

Great! I am happy that we made some progress.
I think this is a purely synthetic test to max out the network performance that represents the condition when there are multiple i/os over the network.
I found this thread, https://www.reddit.com/r/networking/com ... ngle_ones/ could be helpful.

Huge kudos to Yaroslav for the help he gave me getting this working. I only wish other companies had this kind of support!
