Re: Thecus N2100: where's the bottleneck?
Last year i tried a backported kernel which gave me nice results on
N2100. I remember I got around ~6 MB during read and write over Network
on NFS file share, but with processor load ~95%.
If you really like a faster device go for a TS-219.
Data from TS-219:
root@NAS:~# uname -a
Linux NAS 2.6.32-5-kirkwood #1 Fri Aug 13 01:53:46 UTC 2010 armv5tel
Timing cached reads: 700 MB in 2.00 seconds = 349.86 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 298 MB in 3.02 seconds = 98.77 MB/sec
