Windows network drive slow speed

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So i got a problem that my read speeds are slower than my write speeds.

Why is this and how can i fix this?

I got this on any drive from the other system tests were done with an 4 gb ramdisk to not have disk bottlenack.

From what I can deduce, your NAS setup is the bottleneck. I assume your network has a 1Gbit backbone?

 

Not sure if you've outlined this in another thread, but in order to be helpful to you, more info on the setup will be helpful to everyone who reads your thread.

  • NAS Hardware
  • Installed RAM On Client & NAS

That speed is quite expected if you read/write from just one drive. I don't see any problems with these speeds what so ever.

As you don't have a RAID you can't expect one drive to fly at GB read/write speeds. The drive can only write and read so fast.

Its a test from a ramdisk, write is faster than read. On nas it reads /writes 3k+ MB/s

If you are running Linux you should check the physical speed of your connection.

 

On the nas:

Quote

apt install iperf 

iperf -s

Client:

Quote

apt install iperf 

iperf -c <nas IP address>

still use a program like iperf to check network speed.

 

ALso that slow cpu really isn't helping you here. 

 

Sceenshot of task manager when copying files would help too.

Iperf works on Windows as well. Jperf gives you a nice GUI. Test both directions to be sure the network isn't the bottleneck.
