Single Client Throughput


HD Video Play - 720p HD stream from Windows Media Player, 256kB reads

2HD Video Play - 2x playback

4HD Video Play - 4x playback

File Copy to NAS - 64kB writes





Single client testing started out with the TS-431+ in RAID 0. Shaded in the green color above, we see that NAS performed quite well in all testing with peaks in file copy at 117 MB/s to the NAS.




RAID 5 produced some rather good number as well. Comparing the TS-431+ to other SoC based appliances we see playback, record and file copy operations all over the 100 MB/s mark.




Next, we moved over to RAID 10, where we were once again happy with the performance of the NAS. File copy from the NAS ended at 73 MB/s, while peak performance was obtained in video playback testing at 114 MB/s.
