    A bit about SSD perfomance and Optane SSDs, when you're plannng your next SSD....

    NOTE: I'll be referring in this page, to a type of SSD developed by Intel and Micron, called 3D X-Point (pronounced "crosspoint"). It's most widely sold as Intel's Optane. The Optane devices I mean are things like the 900p, 905p, and P48xx. First generation optane, and some smaller ones...

    Slower and slower the more files are stored in the directory

    Hello *, for some reason my NAS gets slower and slower the more files are stored in the directory I want to read. If there stored more than 2000 files, it becomes so slow it that working is no longer possible. (You have time to drink a cup of coffee.) I don't think the network is the reason...

    Expected SMB performance difference between single big file vs mixed folder?

    I'm setting up my first FreeNAS and doing performance tests of SMB shares. If I read or write, from Mac or Windows, a single large (6 GB) file, I get between 80-110 MB/s, which seems to be what I'd expect. But if, instead of a single big file, I test with a big folder with many files, big and...

    AFP performance differences between copy and "stream", AFP features

    Hello all, I'm facing an issue that I don't know if it's normal or not, and Google didn't give me any good results. If I copy a file from my NAS, I get around 115MB/s via Gigabit Ethernet, fine for me. However, if I try to watch a movie from the server (with a bitrate of 200Mb/s - megabits)...

    Hi all, After a reboot, I'm getting the following messages in the log. I tried to add "txscum tso4" to the network adapters' options, but no change. I assume this is a reason why my performance is roughly maxed at 3.75G with my 10G Chelsio S320-CR. This is the ifconfig output. cxgb0...

    Abysmal performance for write speed within RAIDZ2 pool

    Which hardware/config is the bottleneck in my system?

    My NAS hardware and tunables are below, and it's a good build. In theory the pool should be blazingly fast, but it isn't. A first bottleneck is that it crawls (comparatively speaking) on sequential writes, even locally from the CLI. I think I know why, and I'd like to reduce the bottleneck...
