Due to the fact that I only had four computers for testing out the switch, I couldn't
complete any heavy load testing. Let me explain the testing methods I used. I will start by
listing the basic specs of the computers used.
Athlon XP 1800+ (1.53GHz)
(2) 15GB IBM Deskstars (7200 RPM - ATA/100 - RAID 0)
3Com 10BT/100BTX FAST ETHERLINK XL
Laptop - Dell C810
Pentium III 1.13 GHz
20GB (4200 RPM)
3COM Mini-PCI NIC/Modem Combo
Athlon (Slot A) 650MHz - OC'ed to 743
10GB Quantum Fireball (7200 RPM - ATA/66)
Windows 2000 Professional
All tests measured under "Load" and No-Load.
Load was simply two of the computers not in use transferring large files while the tests
were being run. No-Load was simply the two computers running their tests while all other
computers were idle.
