I have slow network transfer speed (26 MB/s). The beginning of the transfer started at 120 MB/s and dropped down every second.
I am transferring a 350 GB file from an E-Sata (7200rpm) drive mounted on Windows 7 to a Unbuntu Samba share (on esxi). The samba share is mapped to a drive letter on Win 7 by IP address.
ethtool eth0 shows:
