Initial Solaris Transfer Speeds

Using my Gigabit switch, I was able to transfer 1.25GB in 51 seconds by copying a file from my MacBook to my Solaris box. That’s 200Mbps if I convert the terms. I’ve heard of people getting close to 400Mbps on Gigabit networks, so I’m going to try and see what I can do to speed this up. In particular, I need to look into jumbo frames on both the MacBook and the Solaris box to see if there’s anything I can do to push up the speed.

I’m going to try and finish the install writeup this week. I took a lot of pix of the screen during install, but a lot of the images came out blurry (handheld P&S camera against LCD screen) I’ll try to clean up what’s usable and finish writing up the process I used.
