I'm using following psping command to measure the bandwith throughput for localhost on a physical server
psping -4 -b -l 8k -n 20000 localhost:1234
The throughput is around 150MB/s wich isn't all that bad but for an ipc over tcp problem we are having with an ODBMS running on the server, we decided to try the application on a standalone pc.
The performance on that standalone pc is far better than that of our server. It's throughput to localhost gets up to 800MB/s what I believe to account for most of the performance difference.
Does anyone know how to improve the localhost throughput on the server?
