The last days I’m doing some test with rsync.
First Test Rsync push
I connected an USB 2 to WDMC 2TB USB3 port – max speed was 8-9 MB/s in average. connecting my USB 2 HDD to my iMac I see a performance between 35 - 45 MB/s.
Second Test Rsync pull.
Today, I connected the same USB 2 HDD to the iMac (late2013) and pull data from WDMC using a wired giga lan connection, i reached around 6MB/s. Interthing fact, the first file starts with over 20MB/s but MC is slowing down to 6MB/s.
My feeling the transfer rate is too slow, so wondering if there is a bandwith limiter? Any suggestion how to improve the transfer rate?
here’s the rsync command for ur reference:
rsync -avh --partial --stats --progress firstname.lastname@example.org:/shares/iTunesServer /Volumes/iTunes
Actually the USB 2 HDD is WD.
I’m the only User, no other transfer in parallel
ALL media serving, DLNA,iTunesServer are disabled.
Actually I want to pull 420 GB of music and video files, with current speed the whole copy process would take 20 hours
Thx for any feedback
