Is brocade lying to me?

The Throughput monitor on the Fibre channel switch has questionable values. The FC spec says that we're using 2Gb ports, and the ethernet on the server is 1Gb. Logically, if that ethernet is running flat out, it should use around 50% of the Fibre bandwidth.

Yet, when the fibre throughput monitor is reporting 125 MB/s (1Gb/s), it also shows a utilization of only 25%. Buh? Am I missing something here?

Maybe it has the old netware 5.1, 39% CPU utilization equals 100% CPU utilization algorithm?
