TS-451A RAM Upgrade

Post by frankly » Sat Aug 01, 2020 6:09 am

Hi,
I am using my TS-451A (Intel Celerion N3060 2 x 2 gb) mostly as video vault,
but movie files are getting bigger (size, resolution, audio and subtitles..)
and my sons have gotten interested in my videolibrary,
what will I gain if I upgrade my RAM to 2 x 4GB?

define video vault, just holding the files via SMB ?

my old 419p+ still works just great for SMB and DLNA video serving (4k with HDR and Atmos) .. and that with 512MB of RAM ..

Vault, is the wrong word, it is my video library (4 x 4 Tb), I keep all my movies (500+) and TV-series (15+) there.
Files get much bigger (2Gb to over 30Gb), and sometimes 2 or 3 people want to see a movie.
I thought, adding extra RAM (2 x 2Gb - 2 x 4Gb) would make things run smoother.

shouldnt make a difference

movies in that size would barely use 45Mbit\s (for 30GB à 90min) you should be able to stream 15-20 at a time if the random IO of your disks can keep up ..no RAM needed here
