PTgrey GIGE cameras dropping packets on TX1

I am trying to run 2 ptgrey cameras on the tx1 on the auvidea J140 carrier. I am unable to receive any frames from the cameras when I run it on ROS.

I have a Laptop with the same Ethernet adapter and I am able to receive all images without packet loss over both cameras upto 20 FPS.

I already ran these to increase the network capacity

sudo sysctl -w net.core.rmem_max=33554432
sudo sysctl -w net.core.wmem_max=33554432
sudo sysctl -w net.core.rmem_default=33554432
sudo sysctl -w net.core.wmem_default=33554432

It makes no difference. The TX1 is doing nothing else during the camera launch, so it isn’t having any processing problems.
Any suggestions on what I can do to get the cameras to publish images?


I don’t know about the particular cameras, but what is your “ifconfig” output for the interface in question? Also, have you used that network connection to test for other software, e.g., ssh and ping? Is this the ethernet integrated into the TX1?
