I am wondering if anyone else has noticed this.
When I ftp into my DroboFS (running pure-ftpd) and type ‘ls’ there seems to be a delay of about 20 seconds before it responds. At first I assumed it was probably the drives spinning up. I then tested ftp-ing in several times in a row. Each time, there is the delay on the first ‘ls’ command, but any subsequence ‘ls’ command during the same session returns immediately.
Not a big issue, but I was just curious as to why this happens.
