Is anyone else experiencing poor performance with this product?
It takes quite a while for the dashboard to come up - sometimes over a minute to just get the login prompt. Sometimes longer.
To eliminate any network issue, I have my laptop and the wdmycloud both connected to a cisco gigabit switch, and everything is set to full gigabit. File transfer times for large flies are good. But the dashboard takes forever to load and respond. And, yes, I am running the latest firmware - v04.00.00-607
In addition, I frequently get email that say " Event title:Media Scan Stopped" So I spend 20 minutes to get the dashboard up so I can reboot the thing.
So, recently, I started to ssh into it so that I can avoid the dashboard to reboot. I noticed that smdb, wdmcserver and wdphotodbmerger are often running and basically pegging the CPU. But even after I wait (a day or two) for these process to calm down, it still takes the dashboard an extremely long time to come up.
I’ve given this product a couple of months, but this thing seems severly underpowered and unstable. Does anyone know of a fix before I toss this in trash?
