[USRP-users] about 10 Gig ethernet configuration

Hi Experts,
We recently bought a 10 Gig ethernet card (X510-DA2) and Twinaxial-Kabel
SFP+ M SFP+ M 3,0m. I installed it in our pc (OS: Ubuntu Mate 14.04.3 LTS)
and can communicate with X310/SBX-120 properly. However, the performance we
are getting is quite poor. I am getting dropped packets (D O) mostly at
25,50 MSps and goes quite crazy at 100 MSps and sometimes even at lower
sample rates.
Previously I tested with 1 Gig ethernet, at 25 MSps I could stream without
any drop/late packet or underrun.
The CPU uses or network uses is also not reaching 100%.

Could you please tell me what to check/correct so I can stream at 100 MSps
without any error?

I am putting the ifconfig and ethtool results and the kernel version(

eth2      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 90:e2:ba:a6:a9:dd
          inet6 addr: fe80::92e2:baff:fea6:a9dd/64 Scope:Link
          UP BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:9000  Metric:1
          RX packets:4530726 errors:146 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:146
          TX packets:6811057 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:26331306938 (26.3 GB)  TX bytes:35856233935 (35.8 GB)
