Slow READ speeds - unRAID 6.6.6 - enterprise hardware - Writes 100+ MB/s Reads ~65 MB/s - HELP! in Prereleases Posted January 28, 2019 2 hours ago, squirrelslikenuts said: Im 100% convinced its a samba issue... or the client system Im testing from..... but the problem is that WRITES are saturating GbE ... so it can't be a network issue. For completeness - How fast are writes to the parity protected array (for a share not using cache)? When you do the write tests, what are you writing? (number of files, total size of data). I would expect all writes over the network to occur at line speed until the RAM buffer on the server is full, and you do have plenty of RAM.
