I was curious if anyone else has been getting this same kind of transfer lag. I know that the drobo is “slow” compared to other FW800 devices but ~30 mg/s constant transfers. I popped two Western Digital Greens 1TB’s into my drobo V2 and started transfering data over. This is the transfer pattern that I got.
The transfer data number would pause every few seconds and then start up again.
On a side note, I did pick up two 64mg cache “advanced” 4k drives for my system but I newest firmware said that it was supposed to support these drives. shrug
