10Gb bottleneck relief

Recommended Posts

Hello. Would a production machine with a 10Gb NIC and 10Gb switch relieve the bottleneck of pushing content to multiple display machines—e.g., primary and backups, hence getting the same content—with 1Gb NIC’s?

Yes and no. It depends on the reading speed of the data drive in the production computer. In theory a 10 Gbit network can deliver appr. 1,280 MB/s. A standard SATA-III drive in a notebook will read maybe 500MB/s. If your production computer has a raid 0 of at least 3 SATA-III driver or a fast M.2 (NVMe) drive it will speed the transfer up.

Of course, your display computers need a 10Gbit network card as well.

We had our rigs on 10GB nic and switches for a while. The transfer speeds are not 10x faster but significantly faster for sure compared to 1Gb, possibly 4-5x. Our rigs are on 2 x NvME Raid 0 with full PCI buses given to them. Psychologically though after owning them for a while, they will feel "slow" as you get used to their speed. =D
