I'll try it out, and see what we get.
Interesting thing is, that i went again to verify the finds that i
wrote in my letter, and it is not the ping itself that increases
performance, but the fact of multiple connections - while pinging from
console (ping -f), the behaviour stays the same, 5-13 Mb/sec varying,
when i log in through ssh and do the ping -f , it seems to me that the
fact of the second _active_ connection actually improves the things.
On the other hand, i experienced that when i try PING on the File
server's IP address from the fileserver, i get performance increase in
the transfer speed - the bigger the traffic i generate, the better the
results, which max out at 25-27 MB/sec with flood ping.
Has anyone else experienced any similar behaviour?
Just as an FYI, you may find it better to use FreeNAS, which is based
