I’m using my EX4 for more than 6 months, if you could really call it using. After I build RAID, attached 2x USB’s and copied my files it’s CPU jumped to %100. I thought it must be caching or something so I left it alone for days, nothing changed.
Than I disabled every function on it. Media server, DLNA, iTunes etc… No changes.
Still there is nothing enabled on it (incl IP6)
I tried every firmware… No changes.
I can’t even use interface. I have to reset the EX4 (which takes around 5mins) than I get a short window for around 2-3 minutes I can login to interface. So I have to struggle for an hour just to change a couple of settings.
I can’t access SSH since I can’t change it’s password. When I enter new password stays there for around 5 mins than gets back to Network settings but I can’t still access it.
I’m using it with Cat5 connection. I never used any apps, cloud access or backup options.
I used it like this for months because even it was really slow I was able to access files through network.
My files are mostly big raw video files and huge art assets. I was thinking device is messed up because of thumbnail generation or something.
I upgraded to latest firmware, which basicly made everything worse. Now I can’t even use files over network. For two days I’m trying to get some files one by one and it’s killing me. And since it’s RAID I can’t just take away my drives.
I got to take a peek at process, to see whats hogging it, couple of times and after firmware upgrade it’s always httpd. What I read so far it’s the Apache web server.
Proccess log is %100 for around 3 minutes and %80 for half a minute than %100 again. It’s a constant loop.
Is there anyone who actually, using this thing? Any idea how can I make it work?
