Well, I’m using it for more a few days and I have new thoughts about it.
1º I replaced all my network cables with CAT6 cables.
2º My modem have a gigabit switch.
3º My computers have gigabit ethernet cards.
So my network is gigabit capable!
After I replace my old cables I got a little boost on transfer speed!
Ok, that was my cables fault, but I never complained about transfer speed.
Before I got about 500~600Mbps, now I get about 800~900mbps in larger files.
I made a few tests on my network with iperf and my switch and cables handles properly 1 Gbps in dual mode (rx/tx same time).
Ok, so my network is not a issue anymore (never was, but ok).
Transfer larger files = GOOD, work as expected.
Transfer small files = ACCEPTABLE, probably protocol related.
When we transfer small files from Windows to Windows, the speed is a **bleep** too, but it’s still a little better than My Cloud.
Maybe this is a samba issue? version 4.0.0 RC5 (really?)
Sorry, but we are trusting ours files in a software in release candidate?
Ok, ok, probably it’s stable enough to work in production, but, call me cautious.
I can’t complain about the product itself, it works very well.
I think we have some problems with the SOFTWARE only.
I’m having a good performance because EVERYTIME I restart my NAS unit, I stop the wdmcserverd.
Otherwise it consume all CPU time and the file transfer is a TOTAL **bleep**.
As I said earlier in my other post.
I’m not using any additional service (time machine, itunes, media sharing, etc.)
So why it’s still running and ruining everything!?
Now, my only complains can be resumed on:
- Samba using a release candidate version (probably more software are in the same situation)
2. wdmcserverd service eating all cpu resources, even when it probably should be disabled
- A power button! Why no one put a button on the case!? It supposed to work 24/7/365, but not for me
I know many factors can influence on the transfer speed, but I think the product it’s OK.
The problem is just the software, a few optimization can solve many issues.
It’s a product for home users, ok, but I think we should get some respect too.
If you do not want to waste time on it, release the software and let the community solve.
— Just to show that SPEED isn’t a issue here —
Moving from my PC (E: HDD) to NAS
The blue circle represents the change from one file to another. (That’s ok)
The yellow bars I don’t have a clue, it’s the same file, maybe it’s related to HDD speed. (not really a issue)
Reading from NAS to my PC (C: SSD SATA2)
Reading from NAS to my NOTEBOOK (C: SSD SATA3) (faster than my PC)
There are some drops on both, but they were very fast and didn’t impact too much on performance. (that’s ok too)
@Ralphael, a tip for you to put in your first post.
Check in the properties of the network adapter if there is no option related to energy savings
