Today, I ran the same test on other servers, it looks the same as
above. Those results fluctuate within ~2%.

Oh, one more thing I forgot to say is the output of iperf itself which
doesn't show any difference.
Before: Bitrate is 211 - 212 Mbits/sec
After: Bitrate is 211 - 212 Mbits/sec
So this result is relatively constant especially if we keep running
the test over 2 minutes.
