Tips about testing and improving your computer's transfer performance.
To verify that your system's FASP transfer can fulfill the maximum bandwidth capacity, prepare a client machine to connect to this computer, and do the following tests:
On the client machine, open the user interface and start a transfer. Go to the Details to open the Transfer Monitor.
To leave more network resources for other high-priority traffic, use the Fair policy and adjust the target rate and minimum rate by sliding the arrows or entering values.
This test will typically occupy a majority of the network's bandwidth. It is recommended that this test be performed on a dedicated file transfer line or during a time of very low network activity.
Use Fixed policy for the maximum transfer speed. Start with a lower transfer rate and increase gradually toward the network bandwidth.
To improve the transfer speed, you may also upgrade the related hardware components:
|Hard disk||The I/O throughput, the disk bus architecture (e.g. RAID, IDE, SCSI, ATA, and Fiber Channel).|
|Network I/O||The interface card, the internal bus of the computer.|
|CPU||Overall CPU performance affects the transfer, especially when encryption is enabled.|
