i´m just taking my first steps on Expenology. I have a Qnap NAS that works fine but I want to get something bigger in the meaning of number of HD´s.
So I installed the 4.3 version on 2 machines to check if it is a hardware problem - not VM´s - to check for the reason. One is an old Asus P5Q MB with Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 CPU and 4 GB RAM, the other is an Gigabyte Z77 DS3H MB with Intel i5 3570 CPU and 16 GB RAM. So both should have enough power. I tested it with a normal HD and also with SSD.
While uploading files to the disks station, the upload speed starts about 117 MB/s and than drops to 40 MB/s or even 0 and varies also a lot. Downloading files to the PC (Mac) works better but speed is also not stable.
Doing the same on Qnap, speed is at 111-117 and stable (up and download)
Any Idea what the problem might be?
