iis webdav as file server, extremely slow upload speeds
Posted on 2005-05-06
I'm new to windows server 2003 and any intricate requirements, so there might be a simple answer for my question. But this is what I've got:
windows server 2003
2 x 2.8 zeon proc's
1 gb ram
4 x 200gb sata hard drive in a raid5 config = total 600gb
iis 6.0 w/ webdav enabled
I think that should be all you need to know.
I'm trying to build a strickly file server utilizing webdav. The problem that I'm having is that when downloading files from my server the upload speeds are extremely slow. On average we're talking about 25-30k/sec with only one connection and then that get's distributed among additonal connections. So 2 connections would result in 12-15 k/sec per connection. Which I find unacceptable.
I've got a cable modem with a road runner business account, which should give me 3mb/384kb down/up. I've got my modem hooked up to my 10/100mb 4 port router. And then I've got 2 of the ports running to my server. These are in 2 x 1gb Intel nics. The nics are setup in an adaptive load balancing mode.
I've got the server configured only as a file server. And the background services and system cache are given priority. That's about all the changes I made after the installation.
I have no idea where to start to remidy this. Please provide me with any information and guidance available.
