N54L Xpenology slow read speed (write is ok)

Recommended Posts

I recently "upgraded my" N54L xpenology setup with another disk and I made new volume (SHR2 - 2 disk redundancy). Setup is 4 1TB disks. I use XPEnoboot 5022.3 and DSM 5022 update 3.

 

When I copy files from PC to NAS I get from 95-110 MB/s, but when I try to copy files other way I got from 20-60MB/s.

 

Before I had 3 disks and used Nanoboot and DSM 5.0.4528 and SHR and I got speeds both aprx. the same up and down at 95-100MB/s.

 

Can anyone point me in right direction to try to solve this "situation"?

 

Thanks.

SHR2 (RAID6) is slower then SHR1 (RAID5). That's the price of extra redundancy. For better speed on 4 redundant disks - RAID10 or RAID5 is a better choice.

Thanks for clearing this for me... Now I made RAID10, and I get read speeds from 80-100MB/s, and also have good redundancy.

 

Thanks.
