Just got my desktop together and running. Yes, I need better CPU cooling.

Excuse my ignorance but what part are you bragging about in regards to your desktop?

I did put it together myself. Just enjoying the speed and the gaming.

Let me nerd back :nerd_face:

Intel Ethernet I225-V 2.5GbE nice, I hope your switch / router also supports it. Not to mention your provider.
Keeping at the topic of speed, if the speed is matched does your drive match it?
You /dev/sda Toshiba model: HDWN180 HDD hmmm could / will bottleneck.
Same with the /dev/sdb Toshiba model: HDWE150
The KLEVV model: NEO N610 SSD and Kingston model: SA400M8120G might keep up.
The Backup Hub I will ignore.


Now that I look at it, brother? Why does your enp5s0 state:

IF: enp5s0 state: up speed: 100 Mbps duplex: full mac: <filter>

Either your LAN Cable is defect or your switch / router only supports 100 Mbps :grimacing:

So if you wanted to take advantage of the 2.5 GbE in your network, there is an issue here.

That, sir, was a very brutal reply.

But very honest. :wink:

100 mbps is the best I can do. May be the router. The drives are my /home partition and a Steam drive. Seem fast enough.

Try using this kernel parameter:

pcie_aspm=off

If that doesn't help, try switching to the LTS kernel.

If you want max performance, make sure you

  • Try linux-xanmod kernel or some other kernel of your choice, if they don't cause any issue for you

  • Install ALHP repos for v3-compiled binaries

  • Undervolt your CPU

  • Overclock and fine-tune your GPU

Then we can talk. First 2 can give up to 30% boost on custom-compiled code. Undervolt reduces heat. And overclocking, well... over-delivers.

Was not meant to be a "brutal" but more about checking the setup for bottlenecks :slight_smile:
and 2.5GbE vs 100Mbits is quite the bottleneck :smiley:

I'm aware. But you must understand, it was just a play on words. Your post matched so closely with your forum nick that, frankly, it was unavoidable. :smiley:

I do admire your Linux knowledge and now know another forum person whose advice I might take at face value.

Very pragmatic. :smiley:

I know I know and I understood directly :smiley: but still wanted to clarify so the user is not hurt <3

Tried that, still 100 mbps.

Do the following.

Run:

sudo dmesg -w

plug out your Ethernet cable and wait for the log, then plug it in again and view the log.
Post the log of the disconnect and connect here.

If there is no obvious output in the log, check your network switch if it supports 2.5GbE.
If there is no switch, check your Router if it supports 2.5GbE.
If so check your Router settings, maybe the ports are on energy saving option and soft limit to 100Mbits. (Example: Fritz Box Transmission rate of LAN connections is only 100 Mbit/s | FRITZ!Box 7590 | AVM International)

check your motherboard BIOS settings to make sure the ethernet chipset is set to 'auto negotiation' or to the maximum speed your network is capable of.

It could be a bad cable too. A connection will drop to 100 mbps if you have a damaged pin (100 mbps only needs two pairs).

It had to happen. If he hadn’t posted it would still be chugging along 20 years from now. He jinxed himself. My brother used to do it too. He cured himself of it, though. It was gonna be that or Darwin was gonna take him out. Speaking of Darwin reminds me there is a nice little bar, a dive, in Anchorage named the same name Darwin's Theory Their theory is: “A smart monkey doesn’t monkey around with another monkey’s monkey.”
