Topic # 139124 28-Jan-2014 17:56 Send private message

Hi,

I was given a NAS drive by a follow Geekzone member.
I got my HDD in it Sata 2 and its a Sata 2 NAS drive over Gigabit Ethernet all the way to my PC. I have isolated the modem and PC out of it and my NAS seems to be the issue.
Throughput to store items on the NAS averages about 3MBp/s - 10MBP/s and never faster. Its a RND2150.

Any suggestions? 

Regards

I know NAS boxes that lack RAM also lack throughput when it comes to transferring files. Larger transfers with smaller files seem to take longer than one large file. Have you tried a zip file, a movie file and anything else to see if it gets any faster?

What kind of specs has the NAS box got over-all?





Sometimes what you don't get it a blessing in disguise!

Zip - ✓
Movie - ✓
Heaps of small files - ✓


No luck all the same issue.

Same brand as mine. 
I only use it for backups now.
Have you updated the firmware? Is that a windows program you're running there? I access mine through a browser and the interface is totally different to that.

EDIT... just copied a folder to it and got 40mbs (800mb)

It really depend on NAS configuration, HDD model, caching, etc.

A Synology NAS DS212j with WD drives here can get up to 60MB/s (480 Mbps), but the DS414 with Seagate NAS HDD drives got up to 105MB/s (800 Mbps). Both with caching enabled, in the same network, tested one after another using the same ethernet cable to the same port in the switch. The DS212j is a single proc, 256MB RAM while the DS414 is single proc, dual core, 1GB RAM. 

Are you sure your switch or router has gigabit ports? Are you using jumbo frames? Tried a different ethernet cable?

The smallnetbuildier review seems to imply you are getting the speeds you'd expect from that unit, at least for large file reads.

Gigabit says the one that works for Vodafone :)
Still after update its slowish. 13MBps I'll try another Ethernet cable and see what we get.
Interesting write up.

Cheers

Have the drives finished initializing? They could still be building the RAID array
