Copying multiple files will be slower and should make your numbers slower than the Qnap specified. Use only the 5.7 GB to get a comparable number.Q-nappin wrote:These speeds were achieved with simple drop and drag copy with Windows 7 64bit using 24GB of multiple files between 700MB and 5.7GB in size.
As far as I know IEEE 802.3ad will only use one gigabit connection per connection (based on MAC-address if I remember correctly) and will only improve the throughput when multiple concurrent workstation are active. I don't know enough technical details about the other port trunking configurations to give any advice regarding maximum performance.Q-nappin wrote:In regard to the port trunking is IEEE 802.3ad the best setting I could be selecting on the NAS ? I am not concerned with fault tolerance so much as increasing the max throughput.
