I have started playing with mounting a folder from N5200 from a Linux-box.
mount -t nfs -o rw,tcp,soft,vers=2,nolock,rsize)8192,wsize=8192 <share> <local-mount-point>
My firmware is 1.00.04.9. <-- should have better nfs-performance The network link on my linux-box is only 100Mbs
What I observe when writing to the mounted folder from linux is: * first 25-30 MB of a file is really fast 7-8 MB/s (remember the link is only 100Mbs) * then the transfere is stuck for a few seconds * then some more data is transfered to the N5200 but now much slower.
After the first "normal" burst, it seams that the average transfere rate is only 1Mb/s.
From a windows-box with 1Gbs-link and SMB-protocol I am able to have a constant write-rate of 28-35MB/s to the N5200. So it is only the nfs-protocol which is slow.
The linux-box is ok hooked on the network (configuration of nic is ok) and the disks can feed data with a rate much higher than the transfere rate seen.
Q1: Anyone managed to get decent transfere rate to an NFS-folder?
