Workaround for the Kernel Panic with M2 Macs: File Sharing via 10 Gigabit Ethernet

re: Bleeding Edge Computing: In Less than 24 hours, macOS Ventura Seemingly Self Destructs

I didn’t much like the idea of converting my 8TB OWC Thunderblade SSD from SoftRAID to Apple Disk Utility format, so I decided on another course which sidesteps the entire issue, albeit slowing performance to ~1.1GB/sec.

File sharing with 10 gigabit ethernet

File sharing over 10 gigabit ethernet gets the job done nicely. Regular ethernet also works, but 1150 MB/sec is 10X faster than 115 MB/sec.

Connect from one Mac to the other via File Sharing.


Performance is at or near the absolute limit of 10 gigabit, as IntegrityChecker Java proves*:

* IntegrityChecker Java works on any file system, and on Macs, PCs, Linux, NAS, network volumes, etc.

Configuration in macOS Ventura

Configure a non-routable LAN-local subnet not otherwise in use eg 10.0.0.x or 192.168.1.x. This will be a 2nd local LAN for use only between the two machines.

Configuration in macOS Monterey
