[lustre-discuss] LNET Self-test

Probably doing something wrong here, but I tried to test only READING
with the following:
lst new_session read
lst add_group servers 10.0.12.12 at o2ib
lst add_group readers 10.0.12.11 at o2ib
lst add_batch bulk_read
lst add_test --batch bulk_read --concurrency 12 --from readers --to
brw read check=simple size=1M
lst run bulk_read
lst stat servers & sleep 10; kill $!
which in my case gives:
[LNet Rates of servers]
[R] Avg: 3633 RPC/s Min: 3633 RPC/s Max: 3633 RPC/s
[W] Avg: 7241 RPC/s Min: 7241 RPC/s Max: 7241 RPC/s
[LNet Bandwidth of servers]
[R] Avg: 2.29 MB/s Min: 2.29 MB/s Max: 2.29 MB/s
[W] Avg: 3608.44 MB/s Min: 3608.44 MB/s Max: 3608.44 MB/s
it seems strange that it should report non zero numbers in the [W]
positions? Specially that bandwidth is low in the [R] position (since I
explicitly demanded "read")? Also note that if I change "brw read" to
"brw write" in the script above the results are "reversed" in the sense
that it reports the higher number regarding bandwidth in the [R]
position. That is "brw read" reports (almost) the expected bandwidth in
the [W]-position, whereas "brw write" reports it in the [R]-position.
This is on CentOS-6.5/Lustre-2.5.3. Will try 7.3/2.9.0 later.
