  1. Great insight, well i don't have that many drives to make a test for you but it's perfectly possible to do so, in the end synology is still just linux and doesn't relay on the custom build synology software, yes it may take time for a avarage joe to make things supporting and communicating well but its deffinitly not impossible. With that, I'd say it would easily support 60+ on linux, probably would need to write ur own spk to do some user friendly magic but its deffinitly not impossible. I would, if i had, such a big array of drives. Im honestly thinking its possible. I have my nas set to 36 slots just because i think its nice to have some room for usb attachments and so forth. If it works, I don't know for now. But deffinitly i am willing to give it a try. What i meant with a grub cfg is that you could on bootup of the loader decrement or increment the number of drives before mounting into linux, this would need lzma to unpack, search file, edit it, save it, repack lzma, and bootup on every boot. Yes its a workaround but in theory u could do it. So please dont pin me on my words but i can say, its linux. And linux has no limitations. Where hardware does. Thanks for your insight though. Good to know info is hard to find on the forum. Perhaps you could add me on Skype or we could communicate somewhere @IG-88
  2. Probably the config file is set to 16 slots. Not sure why your config file is like that, could be because of a non original compiled dsm version or if you had a previous installation maybe somehow your cache has written it. Or even the grub.cfg could have a config line to edit before it boots the dsm. Could be many things really. No 16. Is not the maximum you can use up to 60+ on ANY dsm. Aslong as you edited the according files. Dont worry though even if it shows 16, everything is fine.

    Sounds like a faulty internet cable i had this a few days ago. Then realized my cable was fine i went ahead and started to check the dsm bootloader config if my network address was alright. Maybe u forgot one letter that's causing it. Alternatively, i went ahead disabled cache writing in hdd section to see if this would do something, then i preformed all smart tests on detailed not the quick one. All came back fine and then turned cache writing back on again. This did the trick for me, ever since that; no more issues. Maybe your pool is corrupted somehow. Try to recreate the pool and give the system a full reboot. Check ur network address while ur at it. Usually the connection failed message in my experience pops up when the server is doing several things in the background, god knows what. Maybe the issue is simpler than it seems; perhaps ur running a wrong dsm with a slightly mismatched bootloader? You didn't mention us what dsm version and bootloader version ur on. Could you find out if any of my tips works? Then give us some insight on the dsm version and bootloader you use
  4. I use \\ip.addr internally on my home network and so i was able to get 110mb/s transferspeeds. I have bought a domain name attached to my ip addr(ext) that i use so no need to write the port number; just reading what u said i think it makes sense now. I forgot to realize my parents have 200mb up and down. Would this result in 27/35 mb/s speeds? (Reading again; ah mbit not mbs. So outside seems right) Everything at home is 1gbit or even 10gbit. No 100mbit routings here. You fixed my issue my parents took a downgrade it seems without telling me. All fine. Thanks jens

    Define lagging what exactly laggs? The interface? The opening of spks? What is lagging

    I assume you've installed all freshly? in that case the Parity check on your drives might be running. Did you check that?
  7. Hi, Recently i opened up my nas to be reachable to the WWW, this because i travel alot. I noticed that, my 8tb drive locally ( using \\192.168.x.x ) writes to the folder @70 - 110 mb/s but when i use the WWW address (\\ it only writes 27 to 35mb/s Everything inside my house is supporting 1gbit/s and higher, all cables are cat 6a. SMB Encryption is off, SMB2 Lease enabled, Opportunistic locking enabled. MTU 1500, full duplex, 1000mbps How can i find out what's bottlenecking the transfers? I personally think it's a slow (DNS?) but im not sure, i don't know much about this section / file transfers. anyone has tips on how to speed this up? to be like having the transfer speeds as i would locally? or is this simply not possible.
  8. Although this is true, 500mb/s is more than plenty for most users ( its also per lane ) duely to the stack push provided by the chip. And also depending on bus speeds, transaction encoding, and pci allocation you may result higher than 500mb/s. Picture below should give some clarity
  9. I forgot to mention im running ds3615xs. Is this also in the kernel? Or do i need a extra.lzma? Edit : misread your responce thank you for helping in advance. I really shouldnt stay more awake at 1am
  10. Hello everyone, im currently trying out on my Synology device to expand a single x1 slot to multiple x1 slots (board from aliexpress). the chipset on the expansion board is Pericom Pericom PI7C9X bridge chip. Could anyone make me a extra.lzma with the current given extra.lzma that exists, including my bridge chip ? This would be nice, as i run out of pci slots but my cpu is able to handle more, so given that we can include this driver all custom case build synology machines like mine can raise more and more pci expension cards (sata controllers etc). You could send it to me in a pm or post it here, i would very much appreciate it if it could be done in a rapid urge, as im very excited to do this ''testing'' around. (expension board; Thank you.
  11. You can run any sata drives on sas controllers, aswell as sas drives on the same controller. In the JBOD group, you can also mix those, interface doesn't matter in software, but the controller does / is required to communicate. Sata controllers can speak to sata. Sas controller can speak to sas and sata. (mixed) Yes; sas controllers works on normal motherboards, given that the DSM supports it, or if you have a corresponding extra.lzma with your driver. (multiple threads on the forum, you can find out about what dsm u got, and which cards are supported). *alternatively; u can even make ur own extra.lzma it isn't verry hard to do. What i am trying to do however is ' cheap ass ' and trying to cheat a littlebit, i'll explain here. My current setup is a simple motherboard with x1 slot and x16 pci slot. and 4 sata ports. On aliexpress i purchased a Single x1 to x1(*4) expension board, typically it is used for mining rigs, but if your CPU supports multiple PCI lanes, and your motherboard is restricted by x amount ports ( my case x16 and x1 so (2) ports) i can still use more pci bandwith, given that my cpu supports 4x pci x1 and 2x pci x16. Theoratically i could run x1 pci devices on 36 x1 ports intotal, to expand i purchased: in addition you can find a controller which suits your DSM version, and of which you've got drivers for, i went for a simple sata controller such as : (this controller works regardless on almost every DSM) now on one board i can run 4 times x1, so i could purchase the controller x4 without having performance loss duely my pci bandwith given by my cpu can handle it. about the drivers on the expension board, well that's a different story to talk about (i assume it will work right away) but the drivers of the chip(Pericom Pericom PI7C9X bridge chip) are easily accessable and so easy to make a extra.lzma for it. so in terms of expension, i think you could do alot (if my above setup works) i dont have it yet, so for now i couldn't tell you. but yeah i thought it's nice to share it. about JBOD enclosures, well if you know you're going to run out of bays, then why not consider a bigger case and modding everyting in urself? For this reason alone, i have made my own 'synology server' inside a mdf case, as mdf is perfect to handle heat, and cheap to build with. U can than easily expand on your demand without having to go through many websites, stores, etc etc. Cooling-wise, well just look at every case in the market and copy the idea, u'll get it. Not sure if i answered everything correctly but still i hope i gave u some insight.
