FCX L3 routing 50Mbps bottleneck/throughput

[ Edited ]

I have an FCX 648S running FCXR07400

 

I am seeing traffic bottleneck at around 50Mbps when routing on the same VE.

 

For example:

 We have a small /29 ripe allocation (ripeA) on which our brocade has an address and our ISP has an address.

 We then have other larger ripe allocations (ripeB and ripeC) routing through it, but all on the same vlan 1.

 

 If I put a host on a ripeA address, and route to the ISP as my def gateway, I get around 800Mbps up and down.

 If I put a host on a ripeB or ripeC address, with the Brocade (ripeB or ripeC) as my def gateway, which itself has a def gateway of the ISP, it maxes around 50Mbps.

 

I have nothing in my config to rate limit or QoS the traffic, so cannot see why.  Is this expected?

 

 edit: This is all static routing, no routing protocols running on the Brocade.

Scratch that.  Did a config reload and all working ok now.
