I'm still waiting for a consumer available 10Gb ethernet card/switch. Does 100Gb even exist yet? I mean, I understand setting standards before they can be used, but at the current rate it will probably be another decade before 10Gb is common and 100Gb is even available, and probably another decade after that before 1Tb is even viable at the highest end, let alone in the consumer space.

the question is do you really need 10 Gb as a consumer. my bottle neck is the provider not the ethernet.

it would be more interesting to see the network use it full potential instead of a fraction but the protocol of a LAN network is still outdated. (broadcasting instead of full duplex, latency etc)

"massau: the question is do you really need 10 Gb as a consumer."

and the answer is YES, dont confuse a consumer grade/priced 10Gb/s ethernet LAN to your other local PC's with your single slow ethernet WAN ISP connection to the wider world.

to pass that do i need/want up to 10Gb/s as a consumer test:

simply take 2 or more desktop PC's in your home, 2 antiquated 1Gb/s ethernet cards, a 1Gb/s ethernet switch, 1 copy of http://www.freenas.org/ and a consumer grade 1080P video camera (not even a semi pro-sumer 4K/5K RED CAM etc many consumers buy today ), plus a copy of the high profile high quality x264 encoder app.

now boot said freenas DVD on one PC make it a raid HD storage for storing all your hours of highest quality HD cam footage and your BR collection.

start a shell on the other PC and have x264 take any directory on that freenas and have it re-encode that Dir over the crap 1Gb/s ethernet LAN connection,(without even trying to edit that HD content over that crap 1Gb/s connect inbetween) then say you dont need/want a consumer grade 10Gb/s ethernet LAN to your other local PC's ASAP as just one single example test.

ohh but,but you can err.. copy a single content file to the other PC and encode it locally to make it encode faster...

sure and you wait while the file copys over the crap 1Gb/s connection, then wait again while you copy it back to the FreeNAS again, rinse and repeat for each and every file on that NAS..etc,etc.

as for your "the protocol of a LAN network is still outdated. (broadcasting instead of full duplex, latency etc)" i have to ask , do you actually understand the meaning of these words ? (and thats OK if you dont).

you dont [ethernet]broadcast on the LAN as a generic thing, you mostly use ethernet UNICASTING point to point in the client/server meaning to the other local PC of your choice.

but if for instance you wanted to really broadcast from one PC to all others on the local LAN as it seems you mean then you would set and use "Multicasting" on a given generic local multicast :port

something like ( i forget if its=http or =UDP right now and cant be bothered to check so you change it)

c:vlc c:RocketshipXM-ffmpeg.ts :sout=#std{access=http,mux=asf,dst=224.0.0.3:1234}

then have all other VLC PCs connect to 224.0.0.3:1234

thats mutlicasting/broadcasting as you apparently mean it.

then OC if you dont like using generic TCP:IP UDP as such for NAS use then just use freeNAS's ISCSI abilities and a free windows (i assume you run that) ISCSI protocol app on the other end, works quite well and is faster than the higher level TCP:IP ,OC it comes with other limits like only one user per ISCSI device mounted, no sharing...

:grin: i didnt intend to type all that but it's there now and someone might find it useful...

Same here consumer 10Gb can't get here fast enough.

internet service providers don't want you to have that kind of speed comcast has a 100Mbit service here in Indianapolis but they charge 249 dollars a month .. and cap you at 250GB then you get throttled .. att still has not implemented any kind of data caps here except for mobile devices but they charge 60 a month for 24Mbit .. and do not offer speeds any where near comcast.
