Dear Andrew

Thank you for your help in advance

I keep checking the loading. it is running fine. the
load averages is not over to 1.0

System info:

for the sysctl var:


I don't run   iperf and my switch is not managable.

could you provide any hints to check it?

and tune the system also.

Thank you again
