Issue Details

Can the PXIe-8238 limit the throughput speed of its ethernet ports? I see it includes two 10-Gigabit ports, but is it capable of stepping down the speed to 5 Gigabit, 1 Gigabit, or lower?

Solution

No, the PXIe-8238 does not have native driver support to lower the link speed below 10 Gigabit. Depending on how you are generating the traffic you may be able to limit the write amount in software or use third party network throttling tools.
