Network card speed

hi,
My server is fujitsu siemens RX300S3.
I have broadcom netxtreme gigabit ethernet which traffic details is as followed.
    details                    recieve                       transmit
1.traffic                       103.00kbps                 541.00 kbps
2.packets per second  88.066pps                  67.413pps
3.average packet size 147.026 kb                  1.004mb

my user are using fast ethernet card and they are getting delay in using ERP SQL based.(generating reports etc)

user using gigabit ethernet card are able to generate reports fast.

please tell me how to solve this issue as my all users are connected to fastethernet switch.

The server has 2 x 1gb network cards onboard and space for up to 3 pci cards.  If you can get a 10gb pci card that you should be able to upgrade the server.

Your best bet would be to contact your fujitsu supplier and see if they have a preferred card for the chassis.

What sort of cabling is connecting the users to the switch?

In order to get the full benefit of gigabit Ethernet, good quality cat6 cable and patch leads should be used throughout the network.

Using high quality cat 5e can work, but I have found they are normally not installed properly.

You say that....
my user are using fast ethernet card and they are getting delay in using ERP SQL based.(generating reports etc)user using gigabit ethernet card are able to generate reports fast.

Can you clarify this?  Do you mean one user is working ok, but others aren't?

ya all user are connected to fast ethernet port,of 2950 switch

for test purpose i connected one user to gigabit port of 2950 switch.

so the user connected to gigabit port is working fine and others are getting delay.

So the switch is a cisco 2950 switch?  My records show this switch as being a 10/100mb switch on the fast ethernet ports, with a gigabit uplink.

What connection speed is shown on the users experiencing the problem?

It would seem that to get the speed you want you will need to upgrade your switch to a full gigabit switch.

dear my server is connected to 3560 which is gigabit switch.
users are connected to 2950.

i am thinking to upgrade me coreswitch to 10gbps and my user switch to 3560 is it right idea.

but plz tell me will my server will support external network card which support 10gbps.

radnbneCommented:
I cannot comment on whether your server can support a 10GB network card.

When building your network always keep in mind that it will operate at the slowest speed in the chain.....

If you want gigabit ethernet speeds throughout the network then all devices must support it.

Increasing the speed of your core to 10gb is fine, but the clients will only work at the highest speed available for their network cards and the user switch.

if the 3650 is a full gigabit switch then upgrading the 2950 to a 3650 will speed things up.

Upgrade and make sure your users have gigabit network cards, the switches are Gigabit and make sure the cabling is really good.
At one location I had 3 rolls of cat 5e cabling and installed it, only to find that one roll was bad cable anything over 30 feet or 10 meters went to 100 mbs instead of gigabit.
