Test results today on East Coast and Midwest servers:

I live in the suburbs of Cincinnati, OH. My default testmy.net server is the one in Dallas. I tried the East Coast server today for grins. It's averaging about 60% faster on downloads today (12.7 Mbps vs about 8.0 ). Uploads were about the same (I'm Time Warner RoadRunner limited at 1.0 Mbps and typically get about 0.8 ). I don't remember ever having tried the East Coast server before. Distance wise, the two locations are similar from where I am-maybe slightly closer to the East Coast. I've never gotten a single download datapoint on the Midwest server above about 12 Mbps, and ones near 12 are rare.

On the East Coast server this morning I hit a little over 15 Mbps (almost double my typical Midwest throughput). And it was very rarely below about 9 Mbps. I guess I'll leave it on the East Coast server and see if results over time are consistent.

I normally use results to look for dips in performance so using the Midwest server is still useful for identifying Time Warner problems.

Is the default server chosen by testmy.net or is that a personal preference? Is there any reason I should leave it on the Midwest server.

Pretty good for a week's average on Time Warner Cincinnati's base Internet service.

This is pretty typical now with the faster service they provided as of the first of the year (15 Mbps "guarantee" vs the old 10).

On the Dallas TMN server.

On the old service, I was averaging about 8 Mbps Down, and about the same Up

The numbers are with 25 MB / 1 MB test files. Down / Up

Love the new hotspot in iOS7... now I don't need to jailbreak.

Verizon 4G LTE on my iPhone, wifi shared to my iPad on my back patio.

I've seen up over 50 Mbps download in the right areas. Now if they'd just uncap it.

From a SUSE Open Linux Virtual Machine with a VXNET3 NIC for the public IF.  If you are interested in the setup of my environment, read on below the link...warning: you might get bored because I tend to ramble sometimes





It's been a while since I've had the pleasure of visiting TMN, been out of the country for some time now.  Nice to be back...anyway, I've been tweaking a SUSE box (SUSE is my new obsession recently) that I have installed as a network lab on one of my ESXi vCenter servers....anyway, I'll get to the point.  Just completed a transition from the "default" Enterprise Plus packaged Distributed Virtual Switches to using the Cisco Nexus 1000V DVS.  Not only is it AWESOME to have the IOS Cisco shell to work with in the virtual environment, but that switch kicks the sh** out of the standard DVS.  If you're an advanced and enthusiastic VMware (or Xen, for that matter....and, I guess, also *gag* Hyper-V...), install the 1000V and get back control of your networking.  It is a really powerful box and Cisco offers a 100% fully free perpetual version now with very few limiting features.


No, I promise I don't work for Cisco.  Now, here is the tech specs of the server for those interested (the cluster on which this test was run):


Three Dedicated, 2U each, Servers with the following identical configuration on each one:


Supermicro X9Dri-LN4+

PROC        Intel Xeon (Sandy Bridge Chipset) E5-4620 Quad-Socket, Hex-Core (48 Logical Processors) @ 2.00GHz each (96GHz per server)

MEM           128GB RAM (server0) 128GB (server1) 192GB (server2)

ETH            Utilizing 6 - 1Gb, 2-10Gb and 2-100Mbit NICs per server; configured as follows:

                      Public (Internet) - 6 Bonded gigabit NICs with individual port profiles at the upstream switch and Active LACP (link aggregation) enabled on the servers with load balancing and distribution via IP Hash algorithm.

                      Private (Internal network) - 2 individual 10Gig with zero link aggregation but using multiple failover modes and logical seperation with both VLANs and PVLANs and intra-server, non-routed communication via layer 2 VXLANs (virtual eXtensible lans...which make non-physically connected networks behave as if they were all connected to the same switch...then the same subnet without routing is able to be used...plus adds a huge layer of security).  The private network is mainly for SAN and iSCSI and management/intraserver traffic

                     802.1q (QinQ) functionality is provided using two 100Mbit uplinks which enable STP (spanning tree protocol) and Cisco portfast configs to be immediately learned by the upstream switches (e.g. a VM powers on and has a different MAC address than the previous occupant of the associated IP address, typically the upstream switch tables would take from 20-60 seconds to update, whereby the port would not be "up" until the switch updated...portfast and the QinQ allows immediate failover and MAC learning .... thus, only need 100Mbit cards for this since it is simply "telling" the upstream switches (2 of them, hence two cards) the virtual environment network parameters).


STORAGE     20TB shared Network attached storage (NFS, iSCSI, SMB, etc) and 5TB local (RAID striped and mirrored) per server


Currently the three host servers in this cluster are configured for fault tolerance and transparent failover of any VM that operates on it and, on average, there are approximately 100 virtual machines running at any given point in time with average host utiliztion of about 10% CPU and 30-50% RAM and around 110Mbps 24h average network transfer on the public network and 700Mbps average on the private network with peak of around 1200Mbit public and 7500Mbit private (during backups, vmotion, etc).  This puts the system at a very cool 10% overall load average (plenty of room for more VMs)


There are 7 Windows server 2008R2 boxes, 5 Win server 2012R2, about 25 Linux web and file servers and then the standard infrastructure of SQL, Oracle DB servers and etc.  Also running is our new Virtual desktop platform with linked clones which provide "thin client" access of Windows 7 Enterprise machines through HTML5 or Horizon View PCoIP via IPSEC VPN access.


Basically, I explained all of that in order to say that computers today are so unbelievably powerful, that with some basic simple tweaking, you can get unreal performance out of them.  I mean, there were 30 other "computers" running on the same host that this SUSE box was running on, simultaneously, and the performance is still mind blowing.


SIETEC over and out...later
