Hi Fast Ethernet controller driver performance is as follows on the same hardware based on IMX6d7cvt08ae.

Its a Gigabit interface.. There are No overruns as well on low performance.

We are seeing this low performance on 4.19.125-fslc+gd839dc0169b3.. But the performance is as expected around 390 Mbps on 4.9.124.

on Linux 4.9.124

Most likely, this is the software driver issue in the 4.19.125 BSP. Will report
it to R&D. Also, please try the latest 5.10.9 BSP:
