Hehe.... I just SSH into my 918+ for some tweaking and rebuilt 10 x8TB Raid 5 in 0.5 days..

It went from estimated ~3777mins to ~400-ish minutes..

You all should really try it too..

U should quickly upgrade to RAID 6. 10 HDD with RAID 5 no joke. Any bit error during rebuilding will lose all your data.

Oh.. I was from Raid 6 and then I figured not to waste space coz I have unlimited backup in the cloud. But I understand and appreciate your concern, bro! Thanks!

Raid 5 for me is just in case 1 fails, still have small chance I don't need to redownload everything from my cloud backup; happened to me when I upgraded hardware.. took me like 2 weeks to redownload ~50Tb of data. LoL!

Thanks is it something like this where the guy pushed the write speed to 300 MB/s? I wonder if its possible to set it using the interface instead of having to SSH into the kernel. When I expand the volume again next time I'll give it a try. Anyway now that disk with the IO issues is reporting perfect

I remember the newer DSM update allow you to set the raid resync speed from the GUI under storage manager. Thus ssh is no longer necessary.

You are right on the GUI options but it only speed up a tiny bit more.. Whereas the SSH route is significantly more.. I'm serious! I was stunned..

J series is entry level, go for DS218 for faster write speed.
As for HDD, get Toshiba 7200rpm will do.
Your requirement very similar to mine except I don't need 24x7.

Any reason why you think Toshiba 7200rpm will do?
