Benchmarks - Multi-Client Test
The Intel NAS Performance Tool (NASPT) is an excellent way to determine NAS performance in a single user environment. Any review that only uses NASPT assumes that only a single computer will access the target NAS at one time. We took issue with this method of testing, and spent over a year designing, building, programming, and finally validating the TweakTown Multi-Client Test.
The test uses Microsoft Office data recorded to traces and played back to the NAS from up to 120 client Windows 7 installations (clients). We record total throughput of all clients, and average response time per client.
Over time, we'll populate the two multi-client charts with several NAS products from a span of categories. The products range from a dual Xeon server with 2x 10GbE to a two-bay NAS with a single gigabit Ethernet connection. The products will fall into their performance categories based on performance, and not marketing material, or opinion.
The QNAP TS-653 Pro doesn't perform all that well in our multi-client test, even with the cache SSD option. This system wasn't designed to run at the highest workloads this test subjects the system to, but we still expected this system to perform a bit better than it did.
Here we see the latency chart from the same test. This shows us a bit more detail, and at what workload the latency starts to climb. Even at seven milliseconds of latency with 120 clients, the TS-653 Pro doesn't do too badly, but when you compare the performance to other products, this unit is technically a bit slower.
