I have 8x18TB Raid10 mdadm volume on Ubuntu server. When I connect from Windows iSCSI speeds 220MB/sec read 375MB/sec write. I guess it is a iSCSI protocol bottleneck could not improve it. It leaves me multipath.

I have 2 nics on both server and client. I tried many things but could not figure out how to use Multipath or multiple sessions (in windows interface). Tried to connect sessions as --> -->

I see both portals in portals and create favorite as MPIO but when I use MCS it says it is already connected. Also tried to -->

Could not get it work. What adjustment should I do server side. I am clueless at the moment. By the way windows is windows10 PRO 20H2 so no restrictions on it I guess.

note: We try to make it work fluently with avid media composer. Since it asks for disks. If I cannot get the performance I need from ISCSI, I plan to switch to nbd ? Any good alternatives to iSCSI or other suggestions which works over 10Gbe ethernets and switch ?

Edit: I stumbled upon CNA cards RDMA ISER solution gonna try it ... Suggestions are still welcome.

  • Please update the last part of your question, it's not good formatted and asked. Since you get over 200mb/s I believe that the server is already using 10gbit?

    From what I've found it could be a bug of Windows 10. github.com/MicrosoftDocs/azure-docs/issues/9796 It should work and according to forums it will until your reboot the PC. You will need to enable it again after reboot. Might be helpful as well: social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/ie/en-US/…
