Moving over to testing, I first started with RAID 0 in our single client testing. As you can see, the 3204T did quite well with 89 MB/s in playback and 119 MB/s in record. Peak performance topped out at 122 MB/s in file copy.
Moving over to RAID 5, the ASUSTOR unit did quite well in everything except file copy where it only managed 48 MB/s.
Last, we have RAID 10 results, where the ASUSTOR unit bounced back slightly with 53 MB/s in file copy while most other testing reached well over 100 MB/s.
Benchmarks – Sequential Workloads in RAID 0
Our Sequential read/write workload is centered on 128K transfer sizes.
Sequential read shows the 3204T running pretty steady at 118 MB/s across the board.
Sequential write showed similar performance, with the 3204T reaching 117 MB/s in RAID 0, 116 MB/s in RAID 5, and 117 MB/s in RAID 10.
