    What about this one? https://tweakers.net/pricewatch/704203/gigabyte-ga-h270n-wifi/specificaties/ 6 sata ports on an itx board. What would be the best CPU candidate with the dev/dri support? I think it will beat the performance of the j3455 on all points (6 disks, 2x intelNICs) with indeed a little more power consumption. But who cares with solar panels

    Ideasman, Is this just internal read and copy from the raid5 array? Maybe it has to do with the way memory caching is handled. Maybe write cache is enabled in the below version.

    Ah so my setup with jbod and a camera stream without lacp with a sustained throughput of 113MB is actually a very good result? It is more reasonable to think that it can be tuned with the intel NIC settings such as tcp offloading etc. My reply maybe to serious, was made because I don’t see the real benefit to go for lacp in a private setup. Simultaneous writes from different processes are killing for spinning disks anyway. The max. IOPs per disk is 100 so you will reach this quite soon. I think if you make two pools with 2 disks and you write to two different pools you will sustain the NIC. If you have one pool with 4 disks in jbod you won’t. Lacp won’t help you on this I think.

    I had same experience. I'm interested if someone knows how this works on a real 918+ anyway.

    Yes and LACP is crying out with 10Gbit, read please ... JBOD with 3 old disks... so we have a bottleneck here. And although its a little offtopic as is it concerns to LACP, as far as I know, its MAC address / session based. So you can hook up 2 NICs and bond them together with LACP but what about the other side ... the one PC you are working on is connected with 1Gbit? Even when the PC is hooked up with LACP too I don't think it wil utilise the 2Gbit bandwidth whit that nas. Only initiating two transfers simultaneously maybe. Maybe its much improved but that's what I understood in the past.

    Yes we too ... lol but thanks for your effort. I'm confident that sooner or later it will be added. You forgot to mention what the performance is while streaming 4K content to a mobile device. That makes more sense using your nas for this usage compared to offline convert HEVC / 4K / h265 content to FullHD or so. For that usecase I have a i7 8700K running macOS (hackintosh) with Davinci Resolve and RX Vega64. Nothing beats that speed. I was really interested in the streaming usage. I have some 4K content but in most cases I can't view it because my wifi is not capable to stream that speed sustained to a mobile device. If the Nas can transcode 4K to FullHD I don't have to convert movies anymore. According to the Synology documentation the 916+ and the 918+ are capable doing this.

    Thats steady no-nonsense NAS performance limit of my JBOD pool of 3 old disks

    I recommend to pick an intel desktop GB adapter. It's native supported and much more reliable then realtek crap and its costs as little as 5 beers..

    I'm back on 3617 with Jun's Loader v1.03b DS3617xs. Keep in mind that it wont work with the realtec nic. I had to add my old intel NIC again to get it working. The strange thing is that it was found by the migration wizard but due some strange reason after the migration i couldn't find the new 3617 nas so i added intel and it was revealed. ... Strange isn't it?

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    Yes indeed. IT would be Nice if we could make the xp nas as close as the 918+ but with our compatibility issues I will migrate to 3517 too. Thanks for your help and efforts because you did a lot of work.

    No see post 767... iT didnt make any difference.

    Ideasman69, Thanks for All your effort! What should I do? Revert to 3617 bootloader or stay with the 918 and hope for better times? what About j5005? Mobo is About 120 and A 8gb stick About 60 ... I Can reuse the j3455 as an untangle firewall at home.

    I think it has to do something with the way of the intel GPU driver needs to be loaded by the kernel. If I do a google on i915 with J3455 i found plenty issues but also solutions. http://openbsd-archive.7691.n7.nabble.com/Problems-with-inteldrm-on-ASRock-J3455-ITX-Apollo-Lake-td334941.html https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157729 / review Jason S / Once the GPU driver is up and running, that is not the end of it. After a GPU hang which lead to a kernel Oops, I upped the shared memory in the BIOS to the max, 512 MB. Also for grub to try to clear up video issues as much as possible I have set: 1. Commented out GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT* 2. GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="i915.semaphores=1" https://forums.unraid.net/topic/62525-solved-igpu-transcoding-i915-driver-present-but-devdri-not-available/ I was able to get this working by adding the the kernel parameter i915.alpha_support=1. You can get this to work as well by editing syslinux.cfg as explained here: https://lime-technology.com/wiki/Boot_Codes

    No I was wrong. I forgot how to test it sorry for that. Well your conclusion is a little dissapointing but reasonable to conclude when I see what you have done already. Thanks a lot for all your work! But what to do next? What would you advise to me? Which board with 4 sata ports is working OOTB? and if you had the same situation I'm facing now, bootloader 1.04b with 918+ active on my nas would it be wise to switch over to the Jun's Loader v1.03b DS3617xs ? I have now a no reboot / shutdown issue.
