With kernel version 4.15 a fix in the e1000e driver has been introduced:

This fix slighly slows down DMA access times to prevent the NIC to hang up on heavy UDP traffic. This impacts the TCP performance.


In order to regain full transfer speeds, you can turn off TCP segmentation offloading via the following command:

ethtool -K <interface> tso off gso off

There is currently no fix available / announced that allows offloading TCP segmentation to the NIC without sacrificing performance.

The following error message can be ignored:

Cannot get device udp-fragmentation-offload settings: Operation not supported
