USB3 Speed Test for backups

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

What is the best way for me to speed test my usb3 backup drive?

 

I am using the built in backup facility of xpenology but it seems to take a very long time despite the destination being usb3 and very little having changed on the server.

Are the backups incremental or is it recopying everything every time?

 

Tempted to try an rsync or something to test the drive transfer speed, but I'm not sure how exactly to do it so that the cpu / ram doesn't become the bottleneck (I am running on N54L bare metal)

 

Any help / advice gratefully received - Thanks!
