@ Himlaklar



15B is for 10.11.1 beta


15A is for 10.11.0



Yeah, i know, just making it clear for those who don't know.


GM was 15A

Then 10.11.1 Beta was 15B

And now the release is 15A

Just a heads up, for El Capitan Release version, the build is no longer 15B but again is 15A so you need to change back.

People keep mentioning WiFi, but it ONLY happens on a wired connection.


I bought this USB 3.0 to Gigabit Ethernet adapter that has it's own proper OS X Driver - NOW IT WORKS!




I can reach 80-100MB/s without issues even when copying many files!

not saying it isn't an apple bug but... my transfers are going to a Linux (Ubuntu) server. Most consumer NASs also run Linux, often in a more embedded form, but the network stack would be the same.



Also,for the first time contradicting previous observations, that session where it crashed for me, vmware was running (with a virtual machine, network-configured for NAT). So the previously reported protective effect of running vmware didn't apply this time.


I'm running FreeNAS and have tried with AFP, SMB and NFS (v3 and v4) and the symptom is the same, the network stack just dies on heavy load. Doesn't even have to be that fast, at 30-40MB/s with many connections, it just take a little while longer until it dies. It's like a buffer fills up and then never get emptied, so it crashes...


I am at least in a position to do some extra testing; I still have my Real™ Mac Mini (MM Server mid-2013 Macmini5,3), still with Mavericks on, sitting on a shelf waiting to be sold. I can try the same sort of transfers over IPv6 and see if it does indeed suffer the same problem. I'll try to fit in some testing of this soon.


Did you get a chance to try this with a real Mac?

I have a Macbook Air, but it doesn't have a wired connection.

Just to put this to rest i did the following:

Installed a fresh version of Yosemite on a fresh disk, then only connected to the NAS and transfered one single large file.
This works! It finishes.


But... Then i start to copy several files at the same time, large ones - then the network shuts down.

I tried with IntelE1000 all versions since 2.4 up to 3.10 - all the same.
I tried with Realtek 8111 - all the same.
I tried with USB 3.0 Network - All the same.
I tried with WiFi Dongle - All the same.

And finally i tried to disable on-board network card, same {censored} still - It seems the whole network stack dies when the card is under heavy load with several threads.

PS: It's not IPv6, it's completely disabled on OS X and on the NAS.

Well, I think that Yosemite's network stack is broken and causes all those problems when it gets under load. That's why I'm staying with Mavericks until they manage to fix the issue. As of now there is only one solution: get back to Mavericks!




After doing all the tests above and reading about everyone with a real Mac and Macbook having the same problems over at Apple forum, I believe you are completely right.
