How to confirm network Bandwidth on Exadata compute nodes

(Doc ID 1676669.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 26, 2014

Applies to:

Oracle Exadata Storage Server Software - Version 11.2.2.4.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Example Highlighted in this document covers Client Network Bandwidth Speed tests.
Same approach can be used to validate other networks such as Management Network and Infiniband Network

Goal

Exadata Compute Node Deployments may be deployed with 10gE network interface for high speed data transmission for client networks,  DataGuard, or RMAN backups.

This document helps determine in such deployments what is the current bandwidth speed.

Same approach can be used to determine bandwidth for other networks within the configuration,  this example was done solely for Client network, i.e. Bondeth0 interface which is a bond aggregate of eth1 ,eth2.
