Low throughput MU - LSU
PTS Case 5
The PERT was contacted by CESNET who reported low IP throughput (about 32Mbps at UDP) between workstation at Masaryk University (MU) and Louisiana state university(LSU). Both workstations have 1GE card, but the bottleneck was the OC3 (155Mbps) link between LSU and Abilene.
In August the PERT was informed by LSU of the existence of an old, software-based router suspected of causing the problems. Before the PERT could progress the matter hurricane Katrina struck Louisiana and, understandably, LSU turned their attention to other matters. Out of respect for their situation the PERT did not press LSU for final verification, but rather closed the case with an appropriate resolution rating.
