What affects multicasting speed
I am suffering from incredibly slow, erratic multicasting speed (sometimes it's fine). Seems to be diff't machines (with diff't NIC's) at diff't times of the day, using floppy boot, CD boot and RIS Ghost.
It has become worse since moving Ghost 8.0 onto a dedicated Win2003 sp1 server (high spec) So what actually will affect the speed? How far into the network do I have to investigate (ie. will a crap switch in a remote room affect the speed elsewhere?). I look at server processor and network activity while 'slowly' ghosting and it's all below 10%.
My office network points (where I ghost often) plug into a new 10\100\1000 switch (have tried a diff't make and model of switch) with just the Ghost server plugged into that switch as well. As it's a flat network this switch is of course connected ultimately to everything else (?).
