  1. - Outcome of the update: SUCCESSFUL - DSM version prior update: DSM 6.2-23739 UPDATE 1 - Loader version and model: JUN'S LOADER v1.03a2 - DS918+ - Using custom extra.lzma: NO - Installation type: BAREMETAL - ASROCK J4205-ITX - Additional comments: Everything is working fine.
  2. J4205 seems to work fine out of the box. I do have a PCIe SATA adapter which was recognized just fine. I also have 3 bonded NIC connections (1 internal, 2 gigabit ethernet USB 3.0 dongles), so I did have to increase the settings in synoinfo to reflect the additional NIC (standard is 2, had to bump to 3). Thank you guy that figured that out before me!!! Hw accelerated transcoding seems to work. One stream is averaging about 20-35% cpu via Emby streaming when I was playing it in a different resolution. Idles at 1-3% when running native resolution. The system has been rock solid for me. No resets, no dropped connections, no errors that I can see. I have 6x4TB WD Gold drives. Overall, 1.03a2 configured as DS918+ on the Asrock J4205 is running great.
  3. I've already asked this in a different thread, so sorry for the double post. Will the new z370 chipset and new 8th gen Intel chips be supported with xpenology? I'm considering a mini-itx of the Gigabyte z370 chipset, 16gb ddr4, Intel i5 8th gen. Any input would be greatly appreciated...
  4. Will the z370 chipset and new 8th gen Intel chips work with xpenology? I'm looking at a Gigabyte mobo with this chipset in mini itx format. 16gb ddr4, Intel i5 8th gen. If anyone has already tried it, please let me know. Thanks.
  5. Just as an update, the program I was using to test NAS speed on the Mac Pro was absolute garbage. I downloaded Helios LAN Test, and it's hitting 50-60 MB/s write and 65-75 MB/s read. I also changed the bootloader to 3615 bare metal (I was running 916). I dont think this made any difference because if I use the old program I still get garbage speeds. When the program runs, I monitor the Synology Resource Monitor, and the speed spikes to those levels. I guess this is about as good as this little box can do...
  6. I'm sorry, you're absolutely correct... all the above numbers are Mbps. So using the above numbers, I'm getting 9.625 MB/s write and 87.4 MB/s. Once again, sorry. Which brings me back to my original question, why so extremely crappy? Could it just simply be the crappy motherboard/cpu? But Synology uses the N3700 which is I think lower...
  7. Here's the results: 1+0 records in 1+0 records out 1073741824 bytes (1.1 GB) copied, 9.58202 s, 112 MB/s This is with parity check running in the background, as I completely wiped the system and started fresh. Non-bonded LAN is 77 MB/sec write, and 700 read, 1500 MTU on external NIC. On internal NIC 72 MB/sec and 671. This is on SHR/Btrfs. Since I wiped the system clean, I also tried Raid 10/Ext4, and it was faster somewhat. Do these numbers seem ok? My Mac hits 800MB+ with a Raid 0 SSD stripe, so I'm a little out of touch with reality as to what I should expect... Thanks again everyone for the help and suggestions!
  8. So I ran into a problem and I have no idea what could be wrong: I have an Asrock J4205-ITX running DS916+ image (bare metal), 6.1 update 6. Works fine except for network transfer speeds. Everything on gigabit connections. NAS is 5 feet away from my MacPro. MacPro has 4 NIC cards link aggregated, through a TP Link Managed switch (with link aggregation). The NAS has 4 gigabit connections as well (1 built in NIC, 3 Plugable USB 3.0 Gigabit ethernet E1000 dongles). All 4 list as 1000 MB, full duplex, 1500 under the network settings. All are link aggregated, and seem to work fine. My speeds? 16 MB write, 300 read. WTF (i've tried both under SMB and AFP). SMB3 enabled. I have 4 WD Gold 4TB drives in it, 7200 rpm. Same exact setup, I get 75 MB write, 900 read in unRaid (still slow for what it is I think, but a lot more acceptable). Turning on jumbo frames didn't do much... (I get 75 MB write on AFP; SMB is about 35 MB in unRaid) Should I try a DS3615 image? I dont need hardware acceleration, since I'm only using it to stream to a Kodi media box. I dont think it's the NIC, since all are reporting full speed and one is bound to work. Btw, there seems to be no difference in speed with link aggregation on vs. off. I'm stumped. Maybe I'm just tired, but I can't think of anything that I might have done wrong. Anyone care to chime in?
