Maxing out Gig Ethernet with Sun x4500 Thumpers

Well the time has come where I have finally got some hardware that can max out gig ethernet. I sent 3.4 tb in 9 hours! Thats awesome! GG Cisco 3750 and 2 x Sun x4500 Thumpers running Opensolaris snv_105. Good times - I bet the copper was warm 🙂

root@dumper1:sbin> ./zfsMbufferInitialSend.sh

If you do use x4500s or have the need to zfs send compile mbuffer today! It rocks - I went from 30mbyte a second with SSH to maxing out Gigabit Ethernet. I will post instructions on everything I did soon.
