I have changed the subject to better reflect the object under discussion. I have just done a swap out of FreeBSD to Devuan. It's worse than I thought. I use this box for a personal owncloud and the last time I was taking measurements of the network, it was actually syncing to my desktop; thus eating bandwidth. So, I stopped it. These are the new readings: [A plain write to /dev/null from a file made by /dev/zero] dd if=/tmp/test.img of=/dev/null 1024000+0 records in 1024000+0 records out 524288000 bytes (524 MB, 500 MiB) copied, 22.8584 s, 22.9 MB/s Now the network speeds (the destination machine is the same): 22.9 Megabytes per second, filezilla to Windows 10, SSD & NVMe. 16.5 Megabytes per second, SAMBA. Compared to FreeBSD: 7.4 Megabytes per second FTP 7.1 Megabytes per second SAMBA It's like it's capped at 100 MB/s rather than 1000 MB/s (real 300 MB/s). Thanks Matt.
