Tutorial: Install/Migrate DSM 5.2 to 6.1.x (Jun's loader)

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I've made the Update 5.2 to 6.17 on HP Gen Baremetal, 1.02b.

 

On 5.2 I had: 250GB / 1 TB / 1 TB / 2 TB , SHR/ext4 - and the speed was about 100-109 MBit/s

On 6.17 I have: 1 TB / 1 TB / 2 TB / 4 TB, SHR/btrfs - and the speed is max. 80, most times about 60 MBit/s

 

A complete Backup took with 5.2 18-20 hours.

Now I've tried a Backup: after 22 hours it was at 49% and I cancelled it. The speed was only a few kB.

 

What can I do? Back to ext4?

BTRFS CPU requirements are somewhat higher.  Synology released BTRFS support on the Atom chips (DS412+/1512+/1812+) and performance was measurably worse.  It's not as dramatic with faster CPU's.

 

 I'd hazard that something isn't right.  What CPU?  What disk controller?

I bought a HP Proliant Microserver G1610T. I never changed the Hardware.

 

CPU Intel Celeron G1610T 2x 2,3GHz - I never saw a load over 50%. Normally about 10-20%

 

How can I find the type of Disk Controller? Or do you mean AHCI or so?

 

The picture shows running Hyper Backup. It lasts 3 times longer than before

The processor is adequate.  I'm not sure of source/destination of the backup, but your resource graph is showing very little network activity.

How many volumes do you have?  If you have four volumes, the lower left graph is indicating 100% disk utilization.

 

I'm not a fan of Hyperbackup.  When I did use it it was temperamental.  Did you port the existing setup over or create a new one using the 6.1.7 Hyperbackup binaries?

Thank you for this guide. Just finished Installing on my TerraMaster F4-220 as I could not stand the factory Terra-OS. For anyone interested in purchasing this NAS it has 5 sata ports, but only 4 front slots. I used the 5th port for an SSD and plan to use it as an SSD cache.

I did 3 things.

1. Turn off Audio Controller

2. Change priority to onboard graphics.

3. Turnoff bluetooth controller.

 

Now it works. Thank you! :)
