optimizing NAS setup

Recommended Posts

robertdi8

Hi NAS newby here...

I just setup my new Synology 1513 and was looking forward to some high write speeds....Right now I am maxing out at about 10Mb/s...Setup includes 2 3TB WD Red drives and a 128Gb SSD cache.

 

Can anyone steer me toward a setup page so I can trouble shoot my lack of speed?

Or do any of you experienced users want to help??

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Dave.

Do you have a gigabit network?

I assume that means what router do I have??  See below.

Sounds like you are getting wireless speeds.  Are you trying to connect or write to this wirelessly at any level?  Or are both the NAS and PC that you are using hard wired?  You are either operating at 10/100 or wireless, not gigabit.

Both are hardwired...in fact I have the server link aggregated with 3 separate gigabyte LAN cables.

This is a bit dated, but it does not look like the RT-66/N900 supports link aggregation.

Here is a detailed write up on Synology and link aggregation;

Yes I saw that as well.  I used the network fault tolerance setting...it can be used with non- IEEE 802.3ad modems or switches.  The speeds did not change between my setting up the link aggregation and after.

Sorry to keep asking questions, the PC that you are testing from has a Gb Ethernet port?

Have you checked the link lights on the N900 to confirm they are all connected at Gb speed?

Do you have two computers on this network and have you tested the speeds between them?  It sounds like your network is an issue.  That kind of speed is pretty bad but I doubt it is the unit.

I recommend having a real Ethernet switch at the heart of your network, and I recommend that to you as well. However, like pcdoc said, I don't think your router is responsible for the kind of low speeds you're getting.

 

I'm not completely clear if you tried testing the speed without using link aggregation. You mention "aggravation and after" but I'm sure if that's what that means.
