1 pointthanks.. yeah I went back in and now I have it set for just I: as cache and rest are archive... so that now the drive is empty and seems to be functioning correctly where it is a straight copy without the dwindling speeds.... I added the SSD as a cache as you see I'm having copying file issues. Now that I have set this, I'm still having an issue but I believe it is my machine itself. before you see slowness, now it copies at a full 450MB/s but another machine I have (plex) copies at 750MB/s. While it is totally faster from my plex box and funny how that works as the computer not copying as fast is the main rig that edits videos, photos, large iso copies, etc... so id want it faster there... but still 450MB/s on 10gb is still faster than 120MB/s on my 1gb network!!! so while 4x faster.. not full speed. ive got a system issue.. because.. iperf shows super fast across the 10gb (and think iperf does memory to memory omitting hardware) so network is good. my machine has 2x nvme on a quad pci-e 16x card that copying across each of them, they get 1.35GB/s.. its just exiting this machine... so more for me to test when I get time.
1 pointWow yall got awesome setups! I don't have a rack, nor do I want the sound of the rack servers. what I have started using was a Lenovo ThinkStation Towers - dual xeon - 16 slots for memory!!!!! and now Lenovo P700 and P710's. they are all quiet and can be pumped up on drives and ram and dual xeon's ESXI 6.7 Machine 1 - 2x Xeon E5-2620 v4 @ 2.10GHz - 64gb ram ESXI 6.7 Machine 2 - 2x Xeon E5-2620 v0 @ 2.0GHZ - 128 GB Ram ESXI 6.7 Machine 3 - 2x Xeon E5-2620 v4 @ 2.10GHz - 64gb ram FreeNAS 11.1 - 1x Xeon E5-2620 V3 - 24gb ram - 6x 2tb wd black (yeah I know reds not back but ive got them and they work.. hah) Server 2016 / stablebit drive pool - HP Z420 - OS-128gb SSD / pool - 3x 2tb wd black + 2x 4tb wd black + 512gb ssd crucial for SSD Optimizer Server 2016 is getting ready to gain 2 ( 6x2.5" hot swap bays) and filled with 12x 512gb crucial ssd running off 2x HP 220 SAS controllers Network... this is a beauty.. ive got $75 into.. HP Procurve 6400CL - 6 port CX4 port 10gb switch 5x ConnectX-1 CX4 port 10gb NIC running HP FW 2.8 1x ConnectX-2 CX4 port 10gb NIC running Mellanox custom forced 2.10.xxxx fw!!!!! just got it and toying... I get that people say cx4 ports are old and dead but for $75 to be fully up for me is just the right price...
