    Slow Networkspeed on ESXI Host (DELL PowerEdge R510, ESXi 6.7)

    gsam52 Lurker



      I have very slow connection on my ESXi 6.7 on a DELL PowerEdge R510. (100Mbit instead of 1000Mbit)


      Its a 1Gbit Network, Cisco Business Switch. All other machines on my network working on full speed even a Raspberry PI.


      ESXi is installed on a Curcial SSD (500MB/s write and read)


      This is my NIC:


      QLogic / Broadcom NetXtreme II BCM5716 1000Base-T


      Tried also already newest firmware/driver from VMWare, sucessfull installed. (QLogic-Network-iSCSI-FCoE-v60.713.76-11558738)


      A direct SFTP to the ESXi-Host and upload/download speed giving me a maximum of 10MB/s > W/R.


      The green lights on the server indicating cleary gigabit connection. WebInterface/CLI shows connected 1000Mbit Full.
