I am in the process of trying to improve our Solidworks assembly opening and closing times. We wait around a minute to open some of our SW drawings because of the size of the assembly. EPDM is a crazy cost just to increase the opening/closing times. So this is what I have found out. We have gigabit connections so theoretically we should get around 125MBps. With a network test I get around 75MBps. Which is not to bad. But with a network monitor running and I open a huge assembly at best I get 10MBps.
Does anybody have any insight into why SW does not use all the bandwidth avaliable? Or even close? If I could get closer to the 75MBps our drawings would open so much faster.
