Just bought DS213J with one 3TB WD Red. I am getting very disappointing result using the NAS Performance Tester.

My results are:
NAS performance tester 1.4 NAS performance tester (C# and VB.Net)
Running warmup...
Running a 100MB file write on drive Z: 5 times...
Iteration 1: 9.95 MB/sec
Iteration 2: 10.65 MB/sec
Iteration 3: 11.62 MB/sec
Iteration 4: 11.75 MB/sec
Iteration 5: 11.76 MB/sec
------------------------------
Average (W): 11.14 MB/sec
------------------------------
Running a 100MB file read on drive Z: 5 times...
Iteration 1: 11.83 MB/sec
Iteration 2: 11.83 MB/sec
Iteration 3: 11.83 MB/sec
Iteration 4: 11.83 MB/sec
Iteration 5: 11.83 MB/sec
------------------------------
Average (R): 11.83 MB/sec
------------------------------

I used an old router and connected my laptop with the NAS. I am not expecting heavenly speed but the above looked very low. I am wondering if I configured the NAS correctly.

Appreciate if anyone can guide me through the process to get a better transfer speed. I don't intend to change any hardware but I would expect that the speed to be at least 20MB and above. Am I expecting too much?

How are you connecting between the host you are performance the test with the NAS ? Using Cat 5e and above cable all the way, or using WiFi ?

that speed looks like you're connected via 100Mbps ethernet or wifi, not 1Gbps ethernet...

That is correct. I don't plan to use 1Gbps ethernet as I am planning to use homeplugs. I am gettin 8MB/s with homeplug and today tested the transfer speed by setting up a dedicated router and LAN connection. Is this my maximum transfer speed?

Cat5e. Wifi I am only getting 2MB/s.

While wired to Singtel adsl 10/100 router modem , I can achieve 9MB/s.

With wired to GBE, I can achieve average 50MB/s for my DS213J.

If you are not using 1Gbps ethernet and only 100Mbps, obviously the network is the bottleneck isn't it ? 100Mbps ~ 12MBps only.

Guys

When we say we achieve xxx MB/s on your nas, do we look at Network or Disk read/write speed under resource monitor ?

Network I m getting 20-30 Mbps n disk write about 100-200 Mbps on my 1513+

Thx

For sustained transfer throughput, both the network and disk should be roughly the same unless you have a highly compressible file and you are using applications that support compression to transfer files.

Looked like the max we can squeeze out from non gigabit Ethernet is 12mb/s.

I am not considering gigabit because I am playing movies to my TV via media player reading from the NAS. Most media player are not gigabit port. I further assume that as long as one port in the whole setup is not gigabit Ethernet the entire network will move down to the lowest speed. Is my assumption correct?

No, the speed of each segment of ethernet is independent of the rest. Your ethernet switch will adapt as accordingly. Meaning if the cable from the switch to your media player is only 100mbps, the rest of the network can continue to function at 1Gbps provided all the necessary components satisfy the requirement of a 1Gbps network.

Of course considering from end-to-end performance will be based on the lowest denominator in the network route.

I'd be up for participating in a group buy sometime in the next month or so. Need to replace a failing D-Link.

There is nothing to be disappointed with the NAS because the problem lies somewhere else.
