Bandwidth maxed out at 10 MB/s
New to Fog. I have a virtual Ubuntu 12.04 server on VMware ESXi 5.0.0 hosting Fog. The server is 1000 MB/s to the switch and 100 MB/s out to the computers to be imaged. I have been able to pull and image and push it out to another computer. When I pushed out to a group of 4 computers I notice slow progress with an image time of 7+ hours at 63 MiB/min, I did not take not but I think the single image was going at 400+ MiB/min. The Fog Dashboard Transmit Bandwidth is maxed out at 10 MB/s. Is there a configuration setting someplace I missed that would allow faster transmit speeds to a group of computers?
I assume it was Multicast. I did it from Group Management - Basic Tasks - Deploy.
I did resolve it this morning by putting the computers to be imaged on the same gigabit switch as the ESXi server and its guest servers. I don’t have much control over the network configuration so why there was such a drastic difference when I had the computers to be imaged off another 100 MB switch further down the line is not much of a concern. Most of the time we get a batch of new computers in and image them before deploying them to other sites. The occasional reimage will be OK at the slower speed.
Love Fog, thanks for your work on it.
How did you push out to the systems? Unicast or Multicast?
i think you will find that the problem is somewhere in your network configuration. I run virtual Ubuntu 12.04 server on VMware ESXi 5.0.0 with gigabit to the clients, and i get 3GiB/min to the client. ~400 to the server from client, but that’s mainly compression slowing it down.
