After changing its MTU from 1500 (default) to 9000, I performed iperf and I got a result around 2.70Gbps, though it seems that the result is not stable, sometimes the value going down to 2.30Gbps or lower.
I don't know why but manually assining iperf processes to a specific core (taskset -c 5 iperf -s, for example) seems to offer better and stable results that is 3.00Gbps.

Hi!

I also tested aquantia cards and came to the result, that the driver has poor performance, i.e. missing offloading capabilities. I also have an tehuti tn4xxx network card. This one gave me about 9GBit/s single threaded iperf3 performance, a lot better. Even vlan offloading works.

If you want to give it a try, you have define RX_REUSE_PAGES in tn40.h

After long testing I experienced OOM on higher loads. The problem is the ARM memory management and DMA capabilities.
You should set no coherent_pool in kernel args and provide a big area for contingous memory (which will be used by DMA) like:
cma=512M

Perhaps a smaller area possible.

BTW, I use 4 lanes:

After days of testing I errors come up again. Best working NIC I found is the Intel DA-520. This is rock solid, but a bit slower.

I would like to use RDMA, so did anybody try mellanox cards ?

10GB network testings on Rock64PRO with Aquantia based card. Porting latest upstream driver to 4.4.y was not very successful (too much troubles) ... only with 5.3.y, default MTU ->

On the other side also Aquantia connected via Thunderbolt/USB-c gen2 to stock Debian Buster (Dell XPS13)

That is what I have been meaning to check as been wondering what is the cap for the the RockPro64 I/O.
The of bench is still sort of useless as I think that is memcpy network speed and its network transfer to nowhere.
Do you have an nvme, sata raid or maybe usb that you can nfs or samba test or even wget?
Its great that it can do 6.56Gb/s but what does it leave left for other system activity.

I am not dissing your you amazing bench but really interested in what the max would be in terms of i/o of some real-world applications?
From file server to cluster would be really great to see some benches as I have been extremely curious of the limits.

Dunno if you used the new Ayufan Images but I tried them yesterday and they are looking absolutely amazing.
I have some 2.5Gbe Usb that also seem to work far better on the new kernels.

No, its Armbian with relatively small changes.
