  • speed up wired network

    Greetings!

    I have a computing lab with about 50 units and 1 windows 2012 r2 server.
    All clients are connected using static ip - 192.168.1.x
    Server is static - 192.168.1.200
    All computers are connected to a switch

    Will adding another cable to the server, speed up my network

    Assuming the server has two network ports, you can use NiC Teaming to make two connections behave as one, so yes, you should see some speed gain

    WHat speed is the switch?

        It is one of the basic configuration options for a local machine, and any network administrator really should know what to do, but courtesy of 10 seconds with Mr you can follow the instructions here: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/...oud-workloads/

          Buy a better switch.

          That one is a 10/100MB switch.

            The switch he has should be fine for his purposes, as stated. Using only FastEthernet for the client access speeds is usable, but when all traffic goes to a single server, that's where his throttle is. He's right to pick using the gig ports in an LACP config.

              That would all depend on what his lab is doing. Example for me would be a deployment screnario across a 100MB network is terrible, trust i'm trying to get a production site upgraded from a 100MB client connection.

              To the OP, while it would appear that you will get 2GBps speeds there will be overheads at the swtich and the server. It will however be faster than the 1GBps single connection,

                Assuming it is in fact, your network that is the issue. It's not just as simple as saying "increase server trunk." I mean.. you have 50 computers, accessing a single server for (I assume) file access. Where does your performance bottleneck exist? If you've got slow sata disks instead of SAS, you may find your server is having I/O problems for instance, just getting and putting data on the disk, before it even gets put on the network.

                However, for the example, adding an additional 1G nic to a trunk would help identify tht, in the absence of other tools. It's cheap if you have the existing ports.
