[Udpcast] Two or more clients drops bandwith by 2 orders of magnitude

Wiliam:

Please read the section on unidirectional transfers.  Your udp capacity might be constrained by the nic - then again, maybe you need to change your operands...

Hi, thanks for your answer.
Do you mean making sure of that when doing the test by using udpcast? in that case how? I cannot find explicitly how to do that in the manual.
In any case I re run the test (after a power failure) and things are scaling better now, as expected. I do not know why ...
Thanks for udpcast

Please ensure you are using UDP/IGMP.

Hi, (I hope this list is still active)
I am a newbie. I am testing multicast support on three computers connected
through a gigabit switch. When only the server, ran as (rand.bin is a 1Gb
file)
udp-sender --interface eth1 --file rand.bin
and ONE client
udp-receiver --file rand.bin
are connected, the bandwidth is around 937.32 Mbps, which is very good. But
with two or more clients if consistently drops to 11 Mbps
I would expect to bandwidth to decrease as 1/N, where N is the number of
clients.
What am I missing?
I am using a dumb switch.
Thanks
