Random Mixed Data Sweep
This test starts with 100 percent random reads and progresses to 100 percent writes in 10 percent increments. Most of the contenders begin with nearly identical random read performance at a queue depth of one. It's the other end of the scale where we see large differences. The W5000 lands at the bottom of the pack when we look at 100 percent 4KB writes.
Um, is this a hardware review or a press release?
Some users may want to take redundancy to the next level and run RAID 6 on a 5 drive array. That is fine and I know people that do. I don't recommend it on a sub-1000 Dollar system that already has performance issues with RAID 5 though.
Here I am.
"In our own experience, NAS failures come from easy-to-replace fans and power supplies, rather than the main components that make up the heart of the system."
Changed power supply and changed fan but still no fun.
I had to dump my DS411Slim after putting some € on it in an attempt to fix.
The brown thing happens.
