Ping results for a couple minutes:
I was under the impression the auto-negotiate for 1gbps automatically downgraded the line if too much packet loss was occurring. I am still within spec for cable length, but I believe just barely.

It does spend a lot of time sending out small data but the data is striped against multiple disks. My resource meter says 2 of the arrays are between 20% and 40% active time. The others are much less like < 10% and a couple like the system drive are 0.1%.
I cannot really suspend the server to do speed tests, but I never get my advertised rate using speedtest (what I usually use). I know these tests rely on timing and relatively small files compared to faster connections so it is hard to get accurate readings once you are out of the standard 8Mbps type range. I need to find a large file download server that I know has a connection of at least 100Mbps itself so I can test that on a single large file.
