I guess I should have mentioned this, but I have tried setting
rsize/wsize to 1024 (as well as 8192, which incidentally works lovely
the other way) to no avail. Or did you mean something else?

I also have looked at the mtu settings in ifconfig (-a on the Sun),
which are 1500 - somebody thought that might be an issue, any opinions?

I feel I should stress this is not just a performance issue, simple
operations take hideously long, and some large ones fail completely. dd
from /dev/zero to a file took 13 minutes, before the process crashed
after about four megs.


If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
