He started by saying he had tried jumbo frames on and off, and that it made no difference.BikeHelmet wrote:Turn jumbo frames off. Try turning journalling off too. Then reboot the NAS and test again. You should be able to get higher speeds than you're getting.
How are you measuring read/write speeds? An hour at even 2MB/sec is 7.2GB - far more than your data set, indicating your file copy speed isn't very accurate. Have you tried replacing it with something more accurate like TeraCopy? (Free for personal use.)

trumpy81 wrote:I do have another question to ask you and Stephen though, does your NAS fan increase in speed at random intervals?
trumpy81 wrote:My fan seems to have a mind of it's own and will increase in speed and volume at what appears to be random intervals. I could understand it if the drives were increasing in temperature, but they don't appear to be. I don't have an actual thermometer to read the drive or even the enclosure temp with and the Smart logs don't indicate any changes in temp of the drives, so there is nothing to show why the fan speed increases. There is no mention of the increased fan speed anywhere within the logs either.
If you SSH in and run top, you can see the CPU usage bouncing all over the place as the NAS and your addons do things.
trumpy81 wrote:BikeHelmet, as you may have guessed, I'm not much into Linux, just never had the time or motivation to learn it. I do have various flavours of Ubuntu installed in VM's but I don't play with them much, unless I am using LinuxCNC (EMC2). It comes in handy for dry runs/testing of my G-Code, but other than that, I rarely use it.
