Performance Comparison

Unanswered Question
Mar 26th, 2007

Is there an issue when traffic crosses a trunk link between two switches compared to a traffic between two ports in one switch? Traffic, for example is a shared folder in a Server where 100,000 images with each image worth about 64kb are being written from different workstations.


I have this problem too.

I'm not sure you can say there's an issue, but based one one of several dozen variables, port-to-port communications on a single switch, across a single VLAN, could be markedly faster than cascaded trunk links across various devices.

There are many things that can impact, what I'm reading from you, host-to-host file xfer speed/efficiency/comm.. including the applications themselves.
