statecowboy Posted March 5, 2020 Share Posted March 5, 2020 Hi all. I was curious to hear from those of you who have a 10gb connection on your network for use with unraid. I understand ultimately that any reads from the array are limited by disk speed (unless of course you’re reading from an unassigned SSD or have all SSDs in your array). It looks like writes to the array can benefit to a certain extent on an SSD cache drive. That said, Ive talked myself out of investing in 10gb gear a few times now. I don’t think there’s a huge gain in performance to be had for my use case (would love to increase speeds between my server and my office pc for editing photos and general file swaps). All of that said, for those of you who have jumped in to 10gb, have you noticed a significant difference in things? Any real world examples of what you’ve noticed that you wouldn’t mind sharing? I of course don’t NEED to go 10gb, but part of me wants to tinker/play. I also don’t want to invest in gear and have a lot of remorse because it didn’t make much of a difference.
