Bad network transfer speed from one sync to another

Recommended Posts

EDIT: hAD THE realtek nice replaced...now i have an intel pro 1000 pt dual port nic in the computer, running with e1000e drivers. still network transfers are averaging 27mb per second which is kind of horrible. anyone have any ideas?

 

Hello,

 

I have 2 Xpenology systems up running on DSM 5 4528 update 2 with nano boot 5.0.3.2

One system has an intel nic the other has one onboard realtek 8111e and a second one mounted.

now my big problem is this: Wake On lan won't work on the realtek system, on intel nic it works like a breeze.

second thing and that is the worst part is, that i have really bad network speeds on realtek system. when copying files, on intel i have up to 100Mb/s which is pretty much gigabit speed, on realtek i have around 30 max...both show a gigabit connection. i suppose this is a driver issue...

running lspci -v gives me this:

What am i supposed to do? is there a wa to make nano boot run proper drivers? i am not that good at linux and understanding the whole nano boot thing as to get it by myself...but the speed really are horrible...

Realtek chipset is well known for terrible performance in the Nix. The time to troubleshoot the problem can be time consuming. Better get an Intel NIC and be done with, unless you have plenty spare time to pinpoint the source of the problem.

Some realtek are fine, some are bad.

 

I have a HP Mediasmart EX490 which has a Realtek 8168c onboard

I can easily saturate the network with it.

 

I would suspect maybe there is something else going on with your system

 

eg IRQ clash etc.

 

When you say " the other has one onboard realtek 8111e and a second one mounted"

 

What does that actually mean?

 

does it mean you have added in a second Realtek card? if so where is it mounted? PCI or PCI-E slot etc

 

What else is in the system?

 

have you tried to disable anything in the BIOS you do not require, eg Serial ports... Printer Port etc to release IRQ's ?

 

tried it with only one Lan port? eg disable the onboard and just use the add in card?

i have an onboard realtek and then i have a second one in a pie port. i understand that smb performance is also bad so i will try to create a large file backup task and test again...

 

JUST TESTED NOW IN SYNOLOGY BACKUP & REPLICATION APP I CREATED A DATA BACKUP TASK COPYING 170GB OF LARGE MKV FILES TO THE SYNOLOGY SYSTEM WITH THE ONBOARD INTEL NIC. Speed is still around 25mb/s

i do not know if i am doing something wrong...but that speed is awful slow...

what if i do shared folder sync? is that a different protocol? i will also test that but for now i cant imagine that it is the protocol.

 

maybe someone wants to login to my system and check? i do not mind since i don not have any important data on the system yet...the who 2 sync setup is for a remote location syncing with the current one later next week so there is still time to get the whole thing up and running hassle free..

 

EDIT:

tested shared folder sync also...same speed maybe even a tiny bit smaller...now this is weird.
