|Subject:||Re: [Discuss-gnuradio] Packet drop from Ethernet (A BIG PROBLEM)|
|Date:||Wed, 9 Mar 2016 23:23:26 +0200|
This is exaclty the issue related to the GNURadio application rather than USRP because the problem is from the host. That is not possible to transfer 30 Msps, however, what about 20 Msps? I expect to be able to transfer 20 Msps at least.
Another point that you mentioned is "changing the resolution of the samples". In contrast, as far as I know, if you change the sample resolution it does not reduce the bit rate of the Ethernet interface, however, it changes the interpretation of the samples! It is easy to run a program for different sample resolution and observe that there is no change in the bit rate of the Eth. Interface.
How to change the ethernet parameters or anything else ( if any idea ) to reduce packet dropping??
Thanks in advance,

Briefly I can tell you that you can never reach 30M samples/sec over a 1 GbE interface.30 x 32/bits/sample = 960. Need a bit for metadata, packet overheads, etc. you will drop packages. Especially if your NIC is PCI based :(Try reducing your sample resolution to 8 bits. You may have better luck.HTH,NikosOn Wed, Mar 9, 2016 at 9:42 AM, Mostafa Alizadeh <address@hidden> wrote:
I stuck on an incridible challenge in sending/receiving a large bandwidth. I have an USRP N210 and an WBX daughterboard, while I must be able to capture/transfer up to 30Msample/sec(1Gig ethernet limit ), with the sample rate of 25Msps or even 20Msps I have some dropped packets. Based on my knowledge, this is due to CPU which does not have enough time to capture from Ethernet, however, I have the powerful one, 12 core CPU. When I have a large GNURadio program to run, there are some dropped packets. I searched everywhere but I did not find a complete description of the solution. What is (are ) the solution(s )? Please help me with any information! :(
