Lan Speed test.

I found this tool that is great writes a file up to 9 gig across a network then reads it. This helped me find some network wires that had problems. They were really slow... was slowing the speed of my NIC. The lite version is free .. used my laptop and switched wires I eliminated the defective ones... and replaced them. Also I was able to optimize my nic.

One thing I did find out that disabling all offloads on my NIC increased the throughput significantly.

Found 1 wire that dropped my link speed down to 100 needless to say it found its way to the trash.
Windows 10 I3 Dual Core 3.0 Server, SageTV9... OpenDCT with 2 HDHRPrimes and 4 HDHRconnects for a total of 14 Tuners.

I noticed that as well with my server grade nics, but not the cheap ones. I guess the onboard processors have come a long way.
