Server: HP Proliant Windows Storage Server 2003 SP2 My System: HP Z820 2xXeon E5-2630 64GB RAM and 4xIntel 300GB SSD in RAID 0 running Windows 8.1 Network: Gigabit Wirespeed switches I am transferring backup images (roughly 20-40GB each) from the storage server to my local system and I am only getting 10-11MB per second which works out to about 88Mbits per second. That is about 9% of a 1Gb connection. My system can handle writing more than 11MB per second so I know it isn't my local storage subsystem causing this slowdown. It is something with the network. When I ping the server it is less than 1 ms response. Does anyone have any idea why this would be happening? From what I found online people were suggesting everything from turning off Flow Control to updating registry keys. Curious if any of you have any suggestions before I go off trying random googled ideas.
