CRS317-1G-16S+RM Performance

Wed Jan 09, 2019 6:09 am

I just finished installing a pair of CRS317-1G-16S+RM to use as storage switches in a small hyper-v cluster. I'm only seeing ~3.3-3.6Gb/s between the servers in the cluster with traffic passing through the switch, I know it's not the network cards(I get 9.9Gb/s card to card) and I feel like I'm overlooking something simple. I already tried increasing the MTU to 9000 and that got me from 3.3 to 3.6. nothing is very far apart it's all on 1m or 2m twinax cable. The network cards aren't anything exotic either, intel 550's and mellanox connectx 3 series cards that have all worked fine before with our old cisco SG500x-8f8t(but that's end of life and we wanted redundant switching so we picked the 317) I'm not expecting exactly the same performance out of a 300 dollar switch we had out of a 5000 dollar unit but I'd expect I should be able to pull 8Gb/s at least.

May be autonegotiation problem or flow control. Try different sfps.

Mr.Deslok did not mention what software running on the switch - RouterOS or SwOS.
We using a lot of ..317.. and we have no problem like described above. Without issue we have bandwidth no less 9,7Gbps on both directions simultaneously on every port. Lot of our devices have overall traffic over 250Gbps per switch (with hundreds of VLANs), but every single on it running with SwOS 2.7.
