    Use iperf for basic speed tests. For real world tests you could use Blackmagic Disk Speed Test over an AFP or SMB connection to a fileserver.

    Well, Mausi was the name of my mother's cat who died a few weeks ago and I decided to dedicate the driver to Mausi because she was a brilliant cat.

    I can confirm that this works with 10.9.2 & a Gigabyte UD7-TH Motherboard. No more issues with large file transfers.
    If you are running a iSCSI based SAN, this is the driver to use. Very smooth & reliable transfers.

    I compiled the latest version on Mavericks. It's 64-bit only.
    Hopefully it works ok. I haven't checked as I'm still on 2.4.14 here.

    This happens quite random. But under heavy network usage. Maximum I could get it is to copy up to 10G to NAS (1Gbit/s). Though downloading large amounts of data (25-50G) from internet haven't caused this is bug.
    Also have "kernel[0]: failed to getphysicalsegment in outputPacket" in logs sometimes
    So, I've installed AppleIntelE1000e 2.4.14 (through [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] 5.4.3) and at the moment everything is fine.

    I have to say i finally got frustrated with the latest builds and went back to 2.4.14 as well. network would full on crash after a few gigs of continuos transfers. Seems like latest builds have just had major issues for some reason. Would love to know what is new in the 2.5x versions that might be causing so much havoc.

    After 10.8.5 and Mavericks i had to quit from this kext.
    None of my boards with intel lan, are stable with this kext(10.8.5 or 10.9), lan stop work after heavy lan traffic, the copied file hangs and finder need hard restart.
    I have 1 boards with intel lan, GA-Z87X-UD3H and 2 intel PCI cards, Intel EXPI9301CTBLK (2 versions).
    In one of the boards just need to change to on board lan - realtek , and on EXPI9301CTBLK had to use the method of editing IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/Intel82574L.kext to put vendor and device ID 0x10D38086.
    Going to wait for future releases, right now is very unstable .

    I'm having the same instability issues with 2.5.4d.  Lots of kernel[0]: failed to getphysicalsegment in outputPacket messages in system log.  It seems to be similar to the other stories in the thread.  If I was to stream a HD movie over an AFP (the host being the computer with 2.5.4d installed), I'd be lucky to get an hour into it, before a crash.   If one of the developers wants me to test anything out for them let me know, would be glad to help. 
    In the meantime does 2.4.14 work in mavericks?  If so I'll try that as a fix for now.
    PS:  The instability seems to be on a gigabyte motherboard, whereas another almost identical osx install on an asus board also using AppleIntel1000E.kext 2.5.4d hasnt had any issues yet.
