    testing the Finisar SFP+ on intel gigabit ethernet server adaptors


    Greetings Friends,

    I am relatively new to Linux. I want to test my Finisar SFP+ on intel gigabit ethernet server adaptor cards (x520-DA2) by doing some performance tests.

    I am using th Iperf tools to test the bandwidth.

    I want to verify the speeds of my 10 Gigabit ethernet interfaces experimentaly. So I took two systems each with the gigabit cards and connected them with mulitmode fiber.

    I want to now force the data to go through the 10 Gigabit interface and not on the regular 1 gigabit ethernet interface.

    I dont know how to configure the data to push through the 10G cards, in my fedora 14 os.

    So any help is appreciated.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    See the route command.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
