Ok so we have two labs and we are trying to send data between each and also within each lab. (The labs have Sun workstations in them.) When we transmit data between the machines in the one lab to machines in the same lab, the speed is fine. Also when we transmit data from either lab to the other lab, the speed is fine.
However, when we try transmitting data from one machine in the other lab to another machine in that same lab the speed is very slow.
We are also getting alot of input errors on the the ports that are connected to the machines in that lab with the slow speed. They include runts and CRC errors. Should I suspect the workstations first?
The operating system images are newer in the one lab so I asked that at least one machine in the "old" image lab be upgraded to the new image to see if that helps.
Any other suggestions? Thanks.
