Storage Performance

Diagnose "Storage Performance" messures the Speed of the selected Storage.
The storage device for testing can be either a single storage or ALL, the selection can be updated with "Update selftest Parameter".
Tresholds can be set in kb/sec for warnings and errors.
To better understand how slow the not recommended CIFS protocol is (compared to other protocols) , especially when working with small files, the block size parameter can be used.
You will see a huge difference between 1kb (representing small files) and 1mb block size.

  • Error
    Check if your storage is not slowed down by network traffic, collisions or backup tasks.
    Adjust the treshold parameters if the values have been set too high and if the storage is working without any further issues.
