Network Test– PassMark Advanced Network Test
For the updated network test, I used PassMark’s client/server based Advanced Network Test. I used the Compute Module running Windows 2003 Server as a “client” and ran two tests using two other machines as the required “servers”. The first “server”: an eMachines desktop and the second “server”: one of the remaining two Compute Modules in the MFSYS25. The reason I used two machines as “servers” was because I wanted to test both internal and external traffic going through the Ethernet Switch Modules.
Note: The NICs on all three machines were set to Gigabit/Full Duplex.
Server 1 – External Test
Linksys Gigabit Ethernet Controller
Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium
Server 2 – Internal Test
Intel MFS5000SI Compute Module
