Title: Force10 Networks S-Series S2410 Switch, 10-Gigabit Ethernet Zero-Loss Throughput and Latency Evaluation

Publication date:   27 March 2006
Document number:    206116


Force10 Networks, Inc. commissioned The Tolly Group to evaluate its S-Series S2410 Switch, a fixed configuration switch designed to aggregate traditional and blade servers, as well as emerging 10GbE servers and to act as a high-speed interconnect for network-attached storage devices.

Engineers measured the zero-loss 10Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) throughput of the S-Series S2410 to determine the capability of the device to scale zero-loss throughput across a large number of servers. Engineers also recorded the latency introduced by the S2410 when handling 10 different frame sizes ranging from demanding 64-byte frames to 10,240-byte Jumbo Frames. Tests were conducted in March 2006.
