For a throughput testing through FTP, I used FTP server in windows as well as Linux platform.
But in windows i got the speed around 18Mbps but in linux i am getting the speed as 40-45Mbps, which is more than double. Can anybody please explain me the reasons behind it and what are the overheads and all..
Hi folks! Quick question, and if I'm in the wrong category feel free to move me!
Recently I downloaded and tested PeppermintOS and was amazed by the speed of the wifi compared to that of my Ubuntu 10.10 which is a nightmare. How if at all can I incorporate the PeppermintOS wifi in my Ubuntu?
I've always been taught, and know from experience, that as far as performance goes (i.e., speed or raw read/write) RAM is always waaay faster than a mechanical hard-drive. But where do Solid-State Drives fit into this spectrum? Are they faster than mechanical hard-drives? Much faster? Are they as fast as RAM?
I've installed (not live - but full installation) Ubuntu on a 16 Gb usb stick. I also installed onto a usb hdd. The boot speed and general operation is SIGNIFICANTLY faster on the usb hdd. This defies my understanding of technology - I expect the a solid state device should be much faster the a physical hard drive.
I have 2Gb unlimited data plan, currently used about 500Mb..
The 4G speed is so slow, I called Tom CS, they said its the tower's problem, and wanted me to wait for two days..
The following pictures are the results of Speedtest..
The download speed that more than 5Mbps is tested in Manhattan, NY..
