I'm trying to pull waveform data off a R&S RTO 1014 via gigabit ethernet. At the moment, it is receiving data rather slowly (10Mbit), whereas if I connect an agilent scope with USB and usbtmc, I can push close to the limit of 480MBit (I estimate something like 350MBit). Unfortunately this R&S one doesn't have USB, so I am stuck with ethernet.
Are there any benchmarks on what sort of data rate I can expect using python-vxi11? For me right now, 15MB of waveform data takes about 6 seconds on a point-to-point gigabit ethernet connection (no router or switches in between) which is far too slow. I have checked and the interface is definitely running at 1000MBit.
I'm running Ubuntu 15.04 x64 on a Core i3 box, using the intel gigabit adapter on the motherboard.
