NAS 10Mbs Blues.....

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hey guy's I have been wondering is there any way to increase my transfer speed through my Netowrk with my NAS? Seems like I'm capped at or around 8-10mbs...

I thought If I were to build a Home Server instead that I may be able to see higher transfer rates?


Advice please??

My assumption is you are already on a gigabit network. Have you tried enabling jumbo frames if the nas supports it? I remember having the similar problem with my dlink dns 323

Ya it seems to be stuck at the 10mbs max... what kind of speeds are you getting? I increased the size of the Jumbo Packets to 9000. Is this correct?

Yesterday when I was doing transfers, I was getting 25-30 mb/s. Did you make sure jumbo frames is enabled on the network adapter of the machine you are transferring to?

It is the hardware that is build into the NAS that is giving you the slow speeds. There is absolutely nothing you can do about it. That is just the way they are built.

Are you sure the NAS, and switch you are plugged into is gigabit, and not just 100 mbit?

No. You have to set the size of the Jumbo Packets on all adapters on your network. If you have the NAS set to 9000 but your desktop is still 1500, it doesn't work.

Are you sure you have a 1Gb network?

A home server on a 1Gb network can do 75-115MB/s.

Was gonna ask the same question. I assume you mean you're capped at 8-10MB/sec? If so, that sounds like a 100Mbit Fast Ethernet network. Your network adapters may well be 1Gb (your workstation almost certainly), but your switch might not be.

How are the devices connected? Through the Ethernet switch on your router or through a separate switch? Is that switch 1Gb? What about the port on the NAS?

I can get as fast as 25MB/s to my QNAP 409 but this is dependant on whether there is any other HDD activity locally on my machine. Should mention I am on a fully wired gigabit LAN too. Between my rig and iMac I can get up to 80MB/s. So, I guess its very much dependant on what your current network traffic is, HDD activity that your reading from, HDD activity your writing to & what RAID config you have on your NAS. I run 4TB RAID 5 protected which (correct me if I'm wrong) would be slower to write to then say RAID 0 or RAID 1. RAID 6 & RAID 10 would be slower still. So many variables to consider.

I had a NAS that even with gigabit it would only do about 10MB/s no matter what I did.
So maybe it is just the hardware.
Maybe look into a actual homeserver.
