    We are running 4 MacPro's 5.1 on a NAS via 10GBe Myricom 10G-PCIE-8C-T network adapter. After upgrading to macOs Sierra there was a maximum speed of 90 MB/s available.

    Myricom told us, it's a driver problem. But that's simply not true.
    We wrote a script which increases the speed to 1000 MB/s.

    If there's anyone out there with the same issues, just send a PN.

    I'm using a SolarFlare 10GbE adaptor with Sierra and have had no problems.

    I have a vSphere cluster where each ESXi server has six QLogic 57810 10GbE adaptors and all are fine.

    (Point - the OP was about Myricom issues - questionable value to say that other cards are OK.)

    OP said it's not drivers. That implies an issue with Sierra. If other 10GbE cards are working without problems, then it may not be Sierra.

    Which SolarFlare adaptor are you using?

    AFP or SMB?
    SMB does not work for me in Sierra, be it using a SolarFlare SFN5122F or Intel X520-DA2. I've even disabled SMB signing and it's still troublesome. Has been this way since El Capitan for me, and continues in Sierra.

    AFP on the other hand gives full speeds over 10GbE.

    We are running SMB on full speed.

    LOL, thanks, but that script you sent me just disables SMB signing. It's all over the internet and it rather goes against the spirit of these forums not to share it.
    Regardless, I'd already tried that and while it does improve SMB speeds it's nowhere near as good as AFP.
    Thanks anyway.

    And which upload speed do you have with AFP und MacOs Sierra? With SMB we reach 1000MB/s.. with AFP 250MB/s.

    I get about 800MB/s reads and about 300MB/s writes over AFP but that's because I am using extremely slow drives.

    You should try SMB to increase your speed ;-)

    I'm using Seagate 8TB Archive drives. Nothing will help speed those up. lol

    I will begin swapping them out for 10TB drives at the beginning of next year which should help a lot.

    Strange, that you have 800 down and 300 up..! Even if your drives are slow. We use WD8001FFWX. They are great.
