Slow transfer between Mac and Unraid


Recommended Posts

I have my desktop mac sitting next to my unraid server, both connected to a gigabit switch. I am transferring 40GB from my mac to the server directly to disk and not the cache and it says it will take 8 hours. On my mac, under activity monitor, it appears the current transfer rate is 1.89MB/S. (this seems slow to me?) My drive in the mac is a WD Black, and the unraid drives are WD Reds. Network card on my mac reads 1 Gbit/s and the unraid server says Network: eth0: 1000Mb/s - Full Duplex. All network cables are cat 6 from monoprice and I have tried swapping new ones in and it speed is the same.


This doesn't "seem" like it is very fast, input is appreciated. I have no idea where to start. Thank you.
