turns out for a “linode 16” which advertises “6Gbe” the 6Gbe is *from the box* I guess, so if other “linode 16’s” on the same box are using traffic, you’ll be sharing it.
And possibly end up with “only” 1.8Gb. Go figure.
way to test: fire up a second “linode 16” (same data center) and run iperf or iperf3 between them.
fix: attempt another box, see if it isn’t over saturated…
