wondering if the cache option is worth taking advantage of considering the network speed limits of this nas?

Hey Callihan,

 

Although I don't own a Synology that can utilize NVRAM caching, one thing is for certain and that is, that when dealing with smaller files and a lot of r/w's, caching will improve speed ALOT. If you're acessing smaller files on the NAS, it's not the network speed that is the bottleneck but your harddrive's seek-time.

 

You can easily get a factor 10 in speed improvement on a daily basis. However, if you copy a 4Gb video file, you won't get much improvement from the cache. 

 

If I had the oppertunity to add caching to my DS620Slim, I would not hesitate to add the extra cache.

 

Br, Bjorn
