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

HD Video Record - 720p HD stream, 256kB writes

File Copy from NAS - 4GB file copy, 64kB reads

File Copy to NAS - 64kB writes





Starting off our single client testing, we have RAID 0 with the Asustor. It's worthy to note here that these tests are done with SSDs while prior NAS appliances were tested with hard drives.


Looking at our results, we find file copy coming in at 131 MB/s while playback and record comes in at 126 MB/s along with similar results in Video record. Single, two and four times video playback came in a 97, 116 and 114 MB/s, respectively.




Moving over to RAID 1, our results did not falter too much as we still have 117 MB per second on video record with 110 on file copy to the NAS. In our video playback testing, we found peak results to come in at four times playback at 103 MB per second while single and two times came in at 83 and 100 MB/s, respectively.



Benchmarks – Sequential Workloads


Our Sequential read/write workload is centered on 128K transfer sizes.




Sequential read results for the AS6202T came in at 118 MB/s from start to finish.




Sequential write started out at 64 MB/s then ramped up to a peak of 115 MB/s.




If we look at RAID 1, sequential results touched the same 118 MB/s read.




While write performance within RAID 1 did fall slightly, but the Asustor unit did bring in a peak of 91 MB/s.
