Network throughput inside container is horrible.


Am new to Proxmox.Have a fresh install of the latest Proxmox 2.2 I believe.My colo facility has a speed test file on the same network. If I use wget to get the file from within a container I get about 12M/s throughput with lots of random bursts and declines. This is with piping the input data to null.In contrast when I do the same task on the controller, I get 107M/s. A very big difference.Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to remedy this? I want the container to have full throughput as needed. Bandwidth throttling would be interesting, but not necessary for this project.
