File Copy Speed in Hyper-V with Nano Boat

Recommended Posts

HI,

 

I am using Hyper-V, pass-through disk with Nano Boat on DSM 5.0-4482. to copy from LAN to XPEnology is average 10mb/s, if I copy from the system drive to Xpenology is around 5mb/s.

 

is that the correct speed? anyway to get it working around 100mb/s?

 

I have cat 6 cable with asus rt-ac66u router....all with giga speed.... and direct copy from my windows to another computer is average 100mb/s.

 

thanks!

Are you saying you're only getting 10 mb/s = 1 MB/s transfer speed? That doesn't sound right. If you mean you are getting 10 MB/s transfer speed then check your network adapter setting it probably means it's set to 100 mb/s instead of Gigabit speed. Also in the virtual network adapter setting disable VMQ (Virtual Machine Queuing) it seems to slow down or make the network transfer erratic. I was getting around 25 MB/s with VMQ enable now I'm getting this:

Not bad for 5400 rpm drives in SHR. I was never able to achieve that kind of speed when running ESXi (erratic 20-80 MB/s) which made me try out Hyper-V Server 2012 R2. So far I'm pretty impress with Hyper-V's performance and lower power usage (I measured around 7-8W lower) but I'm finding it very difficult to manage (no device manager are you kidding me!)

Poechi's link pretty much covers how to install Nanoboot on Hyper-V whether you are using Windows 8 w/Hyper-V, Windows Server w/Hyper-V, or pure Hyper-V server. The only difference is with Hyper-V server there is no GUI you have to set it up via the command line. Once it's setup though you can remotely manage the server using RSAT on a Windows 8 machine. This Guide here pretty much tells you how to do all the command line stuff so you can manage it using a GUI on another machine. Just remember Hyper-V Server 2012 requires Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 to manage, and Hyper-V Server 2012 R2 requires Windows 8.1 to manage.

Is your VM setup to use "Legacy Network Adapter"? If that's the case that would explain your 10MB/s speed and not seeing the VMQ setting. If you use the regular "Network Adapter" you should see and extra "Hardware Acceleration" option like this:

From my searching around VMQ can be beneficial in some configuration and in some usage scenario but in my particular system running Nanoboot it was causing problems.
