I am doing large data transfers from a Texas datacenter to California. I seemed to max out at about 6mbps per connection (I could do as many connections I want up to my maximum pipe speed, 250mbps). But, what I really want is for each connection to give me more throughput.
I have been researching a lot of things regarding transfers over distance and its hard to find definitive ways to get better *per connection* speed. I have done some adjustment on TCP window size (on receiving 2003 server), and was able to go from about 6 to 8mbps. Anyone have any idea how I could accomplish this? As of now, I have only made adjustments on the receiving end server (California), and not on the Texas end (both Windows 2003)
I am willing to do some things on the router and/or firewalls if needed (Cisco on both ends) if necessary, and any OS changes also. I would appreciate any help, thanks!
