Not sure if iperf will emit it, but you might look at the bytes per 
receive on the receiving end.  Or  you can hang a tcpdump off the 
receiving interface (the br-storage I presume here) and see if you are 
getting the likes of GRO - if you are getting GRO you will see "large" 
TCP segments in the packet trace on the receiving side.  You can do the 
same with the physical interfaces for comparison.

2.5 to 3 Gbit/s "feels" rather like what one would get with 10 GbE in 
the days before GRO/LRO.

happy benchmarking,
