If your switch this system is connected to is managed, you can check the
ports these connect to for collisions of other issues.
When ethernet throughput degrades it can be caused by many factors like the
stream sending the packets slowing down, or transmit errors causing
retransmission of packets. Often once there are errors, they grow
exponentially because of retransmission etc.
You should try to isolate the exact conditions you have when you see the
traffic flow degrade.
