Drive in pool slow, drive out of pool fast? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Today, I pulled one disk out of the storage pool and set it up in Disk Manager as a stand alone drive. I manually created a share on it and now my transfers are much faster and stay fast.

     

    Drive in storage pool:  20-30 MB/s start but eventually goes around 20 MB/s for rest of transfer.

    Drive out of storage pool: 30-45 MB/s start and they settle at around 41 MB/s for rest of transfer.

     

    This is with a 2.5 GB test file on an EX470 that had the RAM upgraded to 1 GB with jumbo frames on Gb LAN.

     

    Why are they so much slower in the pool?

     

    Yes, duplication is off.

     

    Can this be fixed with the next WHS update?

     

    Thanks,

    Steve
