Ticket #2737 (closed defect: fixed)
iSCSI doesn't obey maximum transmit/receive values from target
|Reported by:||RedShift||Owned by:|
While testing with iscsitarget ( http://iscsitarget.sourceforge.net/) I found that VirtualBox doesn't seem to obey the target's maximum segment lengths. It causes the iscsi_trgt to flood the kernel's buffer with error messages and very low performance.
Here is the original thread at the iscsi-target development mailinglist: http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_name=493CED43.4080307%40pandora.be&forum_name=iscsitarget-devel
The default segment lengths are 8192. If I manually set these to 65536 on the target, the problem is solved.
