ftp slow with largefiles

[ Edited ]

Hi guys,

i have a problem with ftp.

This is the scenario:

 

I must do ftp from my hpux 11.11 server to aix server.

Aix  have a 10Gigabit and work fine with all system

My Hpux have a : 

HP AB545-60001 PCI/PCI-X 1000Base-T 4-port 1000B-T Adapter

 

I have a direct connection between aix and myhp without network switch router etc etc ...

No network error

 

Aix all parameter ok

 

MyHpux :

 

# ulimit -a
time(seconds) unlimited
file(blocks) unlimited
data(kbytes) 1953124
stack(kbytes) 131072
memory(kbytes) unlimited
coredump(blocks) 4194303
nofiles(descriptors) 500

 

myhpux:/ # ndd -get /dev/tcp tcp_recv_hiwater_def

32768

myhpux:/ # ndd -get /dev/tcp tcp_recv_hiwater_max

1073725440

myhpux:/ # ndd -get /dev/tcp tcp_xmit_hiwater_max

2147483647

myhpux:/ # ndd -get /dev/tcp tcp_conn_request_max

4096

myhpux:/ # ndd -get /dev/tcp tcp_ip_abort_interval

600000

myhpux:/ # ndd -get /dev/tcp tcp_xmit_hiwater_def

32768

rmdtwh20:/ # ndd -get /dev/tcp tcp_rexmit_interval_initial

3000

 

 

If i do  ftp :

IDLE 70 %    file 796 MB

7.68 seconds (101234.30 Kbytes/s)            BEST

 

 

IDLE 70 %    file 1500 MB

14.56 seconds (100620.94 Kbytes/s)          BEST

 

IDLE 70%      file  1987 MB

2083012608 bytes sent in 99.17 seconds (20512.23 Kbytes/s)       SLOW !!!!!!!!

 

This is the problem with a largefiles .  If i copy a file more larger than 1987 MB,

the performance are degraded .

 

I use a :

 

ftp -B 1024 aixsystem:

 

 

put ....

 

Any idea ? 

Help me 

Thanks a lot ....

Re: ftp slow with largefiles

Hi stev thanks a lot for response.
Good question.

- i had try a scp, sftp, rcp, but All are slowest of ftp . Ftp is fastest
- tomorrow in the Office i get a info form my server but for now
Hpux 11.11 with patch deve ber 2010
Aix is on new hardware info tomorrow
Exactly only cable dedicated connection from my hp And aix for application migration
I asked Aix parameter to aix sistema engeen. I think that are Good because aix haven't problem with
Other systems
The source And the destination are the same for small And big file.
I had test a copy also from a another cluster node And work very fine(100 mb) but also with 800 mb files
Tomorrow i test file >2gb

Help
