  1. Hi everyone, especially armbian maintainers! I'd like to make use of great performance of this board regarding SATA performance which is crippled by 1Gbps so my question is, would etherchannel work on this hardware? I understand that the board has only 1Gbps from the switch (dual LAN ports) so I guess the only possible way to exceed 1Gbps output would be to bundle WAN && [LAN01|LAN02]. Anyone tried this or believe it should work? I don't have the board to try. Thanks.

    Espressobin - etherchannel?

    It looks like we have PCIe 2.0 which supports 500/500MB simultaneous read/write bandwidth. There are some cheap Asus 10Gbe adapters that could possible use all the bandwidth available (read from SATA, write to PCIe and in the opposite direction), so we can see close to 400/400 out of 10Gbe port without RAID overhead. I'm not interested in RAID, just a JBOD performance Edit: Not sure about the exact wiring in Espressobin and capabilities of shared SERDES lanes among PCIe2.0 and SATA, some research says around 7.5Gbps total throughput, so I'll lower expectations to 3Gbe full duplex speeds with separte 10Gbe card in mPCI slot.. I believe @tkaiser could say a word or two on the matter

    Espressobin - etherchannel?

    not a bad idea By looking at http://espressobin.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/ESPRESSObin-V3-Hardware-Block-diagram-v3-1.pdf , one could imagine that we might get much higher than 2Gbps if we go 10Gbps PCI-E adapter route.. SATA has it's own direct lane to SoC..

    unfortunately you are right, Topaz is connected to SoC via RGMII (1Gbps) so no chance for port channel.

    Is ESPRESSObin v7 Supported?

    @Igor do you have a procedure for non-internal staff that would get v7 on the official support list? Maybe some of the guys could do the tests if what @ManoftheSea said is not enough. Thanks
