I was copying a 15GB file on my LAN and noticed three things. Perhaps this is a just an FYI.
Router is Surf SOHO MK3 running firmware 7.1.2. The source is a Windows PC with an SSD. The target is a NAS with an SSD. Both the source and target are connected to switches (different ones) and using Ethernet. Windows reports the copy operation running at close to full GB speed (not much else going on).
During the file copy:
- The bandwidth does not show up in the Client List.
- CPU usage in the router spikes up to 100% and stays there during the file copy
- Another computer on the LAN was blocked from accessing the router web interface. Best guess is that this was due to the LAN being flooded with traffic
Is this to be expected?
