I'm currently facing a throughput limitation in my small core network setup, and I'm seeking advice on how to optimize it for higher speeds. Here's the current setup: Equipment: Two small core setups, each with Switches, ASAs (Adaptive Security Appliances), WLC (Wireless LAN Controller), etc. The Core Switch is connected to the ASA on both kits. Both switches are interconnected. Each kit has a laptop connected to the switch, behind the ASA, for testing.
Issue: I'm aiming for 10G throughput, but I'm only achieving 1G due to port channel configurations. (since the throughput of a port channel is typically limited to the bandwidth of the individual links in the bundle.) I understand that having more than one IP on each side might help improve the throughput.
Questions: How can I reconfigure/change my setup to maximize throughput? Is there software available that can simulate multiple clients to test network performance?
Any guidance, tips, or recommended tools/software for testing and optimization would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your assistance!
