Benchmarks - Real World CIFS File Transfers


This is my new test that pushes us further away from canned benchmarks. In this test, we use Diskbench from Nodesoft to transfer individual files and directories to and from the target NAS. Diskbench records the transfer, and gives us the performance results.


Blu-Ray ISO Transfer - Avatar 2D 3D - 46.6 GB Transfer

MP3 Transfer - Frankie Bones Live at Get Freaky x 10 - 1.85 GB Transfer

Photo Transfer - Sample Picture from SSD Block Test x20 - 153 MB Transfer

Game Transfer - rFactor Directory - 1.62 GB Transfer


All of these files, other than the Avatar Blu-Ray ISO, are part of the Drives with Data Test.


File to NAS




Our latest test for NAS products uses real files and real transfers while we measure the results. In this test, we again see similar results between RAID 1 and RAID 0. When reading data from the NAS, RAID 0 increased the Game Directory Copy performance.

File From NAS




In this set of tests, we're writing data to the NAS from the host PC.
