+100mb is pretty good, depending on the rest of your systems spec, there will probably be a bottleneck somewhere (usually the hdd speed). I'm guessing from your comment you are bonding/teaming/link aggregation, the bottleneck will apply regardless of that. Out of interest, what data do you need to move so fast? :0

I'm using Static Link aggregation. I have 4 Drives rated above 113MB/s - at Avg. Sequential Write Speed 148MB/s

 

I'm running on Asrock J3455 (http://asrock.com/mb/Intel/J3455-ITX/) - it should be able to do this.

 

But so far I'm unable to reproduce it. There is a lack of articles on this topic on how to make these 4 port cards work and their full setups.

 

Have you done anything like this?

 

EDIT:

 

I believe SMB Multichannel should be working here, but I havent found a guide on this.

I'm using the same mobo in one of my systems, and have used quad port nics, but not in a link aggregation mode.

My recollection of setting up link agg is that there is a unique driver/module that provides the bonding/teaming etc in the O/S, and or you need the kernel bonding support, creating a virtual nic, but I doubt that driver is included in XPE/DSM. You could have a look at how bonding is setup in ubuntu (close to XPE/DSM)

I also recall some threads where people have setup link agg, you might have a search for those.
