I want to set up a NAS (Network Attached Storage).
I have a PIII 1000mHz with i guess 396 memory.
gigabit pci and switch.
My question is, if the Cpu is too slow to handle file transfer at a reasonable speed, e.g. above 15 mByte/sec??
what is the most efficient system to use??
FreeNAS, NASLite and Openfiler. etc.
or does it even matter using a reg OS??
that system more than meets the requirements of every NAS server suite out there including Windows Home Server, so you should have no trouble at all.
well, I do not get transfer rates above 9.5 mB/second.
I order to run a nas (the system) of couorse the hardware is sufficient, but not for obtaining high transfer rates. Does anyone have some experience on that??
You will get better results if you have a better NIC. There is a Intel one on newegg for about $30 shipped that is suppose to be the best. What brand/model switch do you have? Make sure you have everything on auto, and full duplex enabled.
You might want to take a look at ClarkConnect. I just recently found out about it. It can run as a NAS and a firewall with squid web proxy cahe, snort intrution detection /prevention, DansGuardian URL filter, and much more. Easy to setup, and use. I'm still debating if I should use it or pfSense.
I have both netgear nic and switch 1gbit.
what do you mean by auto??
and I guess duplex I find under the nic properties?
