I have A7N266-VM and I also experience the bad performance with the 261 drivers. For additional information it might be caused by bad interrupt handling. While I use scp, vmstat -n 1 says the system uses about 130000 interrupts / s. The idle usage is 100 interrupts/s. The CPU usage is around 50%. The transfer rate is about 1MB/s.

With optimization=1 the interrupts drop to 65k/s and the transfer rate is 3MB/s. CPU utilization is ~55%.

I'm using Debian sarge with 2.4.24 kernel with debian patches.

On the other machine (dual P2 with realtek) there are only about 2500 interrupts /s on the same data rate. It uses 99% of the other CPU.

Next I'll try the 256 drivers.

With 256 drivers there are abou 2500 interrupts /s, which is normal. It seems that nvnet version 261 interrupt behaviour is flawed. The throughput increased a bit to 3.2MB/s and CPU utilization decreased from 55% to 15% with scp
