The sampling rate is user-configurable, and we really need to support as large a bandwidth as possible. On the N200, my code worked fine for sampling rates up to ~15Msps, but on the E310 the same code is struggling to run over about 500Ksps.

My code is fairly simple, in that I'm calling 'usrp->recv()' in a pretty tight loop, very similar to the 'rx_samples_to_file' example. The timeout value I'm passing into the recv() call is currently 3.0 seconds, and my 'nsampls_per_buf' is typically 512.

Also, try running "perf top" to get an idea where the hotspots are.

The slides from Mans talk at ELC 2015 might be helpful with perf:
