Have a Drobo FS with about 1.2 TB free and I’m reporting extremely slow write times. According to the AJA System Test I’m getting approximately 4.4 MB/s write and 25.5 MB/s read.
I’ve done the above test with the FS plugged into my router (a DIR-825) as well as directly into my 24" iMac and the results have been basically identical.
From the reading I’ve done on these forums, I should expect 3-4 times better write speeds than that. If I can’t improve these then I’m afraid I’m going to have to return the item.
Can anyone offer up some suggestions on things I could do or troubleshoot to improve my write speeds?
And here’s a related question: there seems to be chat on this forum from users who are using the FS with jumbo frames, but from everything I’ve read, you need a specific DroboApp to do this which is not available for the FS. Can someone kindly outline the steps to enabling Jumbo Frames with the FS and an iMac? My iMac NIC card supports JS and I’m already using Cat6 cables.
Thanks in advance.
