Poor NFS/Network IO Performance When Using Bonding in mode=4 or 802.3ad
Last updated on APRIL 19, 2016
Applies to:Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 5.9 with Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel [2.6.39] and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
The NFS or Network performance is really bad when bonding is in mode=4 even though the NIC is of 10Gb or 1Gb.
Getting a constant throughput of a around 100Mb - 200Mb on a running a "dd(1)" command to a NFS mount point even though , installed with 2 x 10Gb NICS in a LACP mode (mode=4) bond and also the
scenario is same when using 4 x 1Gb bonded LACP.
