RAID1 (2x ST2000DL004/HD204UI)
transfering large files over shared folders:
~30MB/s (reading from NAS)
~40-45MB/s (writing to NAS)
in comparison ftp:
Read speeds should be faster than Write Speeds, which makes the Samba stats you provided look quite suspicious.
Perhaps we should start with the Published Speeds, as published in the [url]4-Bay NAS Comparison[/url] chart. It claims the following for a TS-412:
[=========] Chart [==] Your Stats
Samba Read: 69.3 .......... 30
Samba Write: 32.7 ......... 40-45
FTP Read: ...110.3 ......... 60
FTP Write: ... 32.8 ......... 15
Your stats are indeed quite different than QNAP's numbers.
It is interesting that your SAMBA "write" speeds are actually 50% faster than claimed by QNAP, yet your other stats are approximately 50% smaller.
Please tell us more about your network. Router Make/Model? Was there any other equipment active on your LAN when these stats were taken?
What QPKGS are installed?
I note than your TS-412 NAS only has a 1.2 GHz CPU, and only has 256 MB of RAM, so performance could be severely affected if you are using many QPKG's on your system, or if you have any form of Torrent software running. How did you make your speed measurements to arrive at those values? What services were enabled at the time of the tests? Are you using more than one of the NAS's Ethernet ports?
Perhaps if I had a better understanding of your network perhaps I could provide some suggestions.
