I have a Dell R410 server with a NIC Broadcom BCM5716C Nextreme II GigE with 4 ports
Two ports are connected to a CISCO SFE2010 (48p 10/100 with LACP, LAG support).
I want to make a link aggregation on the two ports to make a 200mbps link (100+100).
First, I created in Cisco, a LAG group with the two ports and activated the LACP with the same priority number.
Than I used the software Broadcom Advanced Control Suite 4 (BACS) to create a team using the LACP procol (802.3ad). The software created a new nework adapter "TEAM 1 - BASP VIRTUAL ADAPTER). The Link Speed that is appearing on Task Manager is 200mbps.
The problem is that when I transfer files to this server, every time the network utilization show me 45~50% and never above this on task manager. What I am doing wrong?
