Low througput with simple p2p SXT link

Tue Dec 03, 2013 2:42 am

Hi,
I made a testing environment with 2x SXT LITE5.

Setup:
Distance ~4m.
I lowered the TX power.
Each SXT has a windows pc (win7 and 8) directly connected to it.

Results (pc to pc over a gbit switch):
C:\iperf>iperf -c 192.168.0.16 -w 256k -l 256k

[  5]  0.0-10.1 sec   723 MBytes   600 Mbits/sec


Results over the SXT link:

SXT to SXT UDP bandwidth test yields ~98MBit each way and bi directional. TCP didn't make sense cause it would peg the SXT cpu at 100%.

Iperf:
C:\iperf>iperf -c 192.168.0.16
------------------------------------------------------------
Client connecting to 192.168.0.16, TCP port 5001
TCP window size: 64.0 KByte (default)

Very low.
Weird thing is that file copy pc to pc over SXT yields better throughput:

I can get ~85Mbits in each direction, but full duplex only 53/53Mbits.
The SXT cpu is fine (~40% usage) and I have no idea what to do or how to test.
Mikrotik bandwidth test from PC to PC gives crap numbers, much lower than real tests or even iperf.

Any ideas what could be wrong?

What speeds are showing in Wireless Registrations ?

Did you make sure both chains were enabled ?

It connected at 300/300 signal -45 if I recall correctly, it was a few days ago.

UDP SXT to SXT was over 100/100Mbit full duplex.
UDP SXT to SXT one way was up to 210Mbit.

I'll retest and document better :)
