Easily found its LAN IP, entered webinterface. Was not positevely surprised how basic it is comparing to ‘mybook world’.
Updated firmware to latest (01.02.03).
Disabled mionet, aftp, twonky, itunes, mDNSresponder.
Noticed that hdd parks head very frequently… like in WD My Book World and there is no way you can change that with ‘hdparm’ (shame WD)…
that is ironic - you do produce NAS but don’t allow to change that head parking value…
Noticed that webinterface runs on ‘apache2’ which seems to causing unacceptably high system cpu load (according to results of command ‘top’)
00:16:03 up 40 min, 1 user, load average: 1.06, 1.05, 0.95
^ those values is way too high… with MyBook World and mini_httpd this problem was non-existent…
Will definatively do something about it… is it possible to use mini_httpd instead of apache2 ???
Now about LAN transfer speeds… on my Gbit wired LAN via router speed was ~45megabytes/sec to/from NAS.
Too tired to test something else now, but i will these holidays.
p.s. Just stopped apache2, but load average is still about 1 wtf.
p.s.s. ok, re-enabled apache2, restarted and values dropped (thankfully).
Now it is:
01:27:57 up 4 min, 1 user, load average: 1.02, 0.70, 0.36
0.36 seems OK ±
p.s.s.s.s. Started “optimization”. When i first logged in to ssh, ps aux looked like this - http://paste2.org/p/1203121 (quite a mess)… so i disabled that and that… and now it is looking like this: http://paste2.org/p/1203125
But still i will try to do more… i believe those sleeping proccesses is not really needed, at least some of them…
Despite all of this, load average tend to go 1.00 or more…
