PowerVM SEA etherchannel performance ?

Hello,

POWER7 machine.
4 x 1Gbit port ethernet adapter is dedicated to vios. 8023ad etherchannel is created using those 4 ports. Etherchannel adapter is shared to lpars using SEA.
If I test network performance directly from vios partition (using iperf) I'm geting nice 4Gbit throughput. But if I test from lpar partition (using iperf) I'm getting only about 1.5Gbit throughput (one time I saw 2Gbit, but never above 2Gbit).

Seems like SEA problem but where ?

Thanks,
Vilius M.

largesend=1 is default on my vios version - tried large_receive=yes - no change same result 1.4-1.8Gbit speed.

It was largesend but nothing to do with vios or SEA, setting
Code:
# chdev -a mtu_bypass=on -l en0
# ifconfig -a
en0: flags=1e084863,14c0<UP,BROADCAST,NOTRAILERS,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST,GROUPRT,64BIT,CHECKSUM_OFFLOAD(ACTIVE),LARGESEND,CHAIN>

on lpar network interface solves the problem - now I'm getting full 4Gbit speed.

Thanks,
Vilius M.
