So I have been using OMV for a while and i really enjoy the product but i have come across a problem i cannot fix, I have searched everywhere including googling site:forums.openmediavualt.org. So my issue is poor internal disk performance and in result poor smb performance
Using test DD Conv=fdatasync if=/dev/sda(or B-F) of=/tmp/test.img bs=1G count=3
SDA(os) 15 mb/s tried with a known good 60GB SSD 53 mb/s
SDB-F 25 mb/s (2TB-3TB drives that show links capable of Sata II and Sata III)
I have checked everything in the hard drive sticky, and everything appears okay except most of drives do not show AA, but the AHCI Kernal is loaded and i am using the backport kernal.
My hardware was a AM3 MSI board with a Athlon 610e quad core, I than tried an Asrock FM1 board with an A4 3400 and i saw a small 10 m/b or so improvement. These are on Fresh installs, the amd64 version.
Here is where it gets weird, if i do an SMB transfer it sits around 30 mb/s or so but if I go into the OMV webgui and refresh my network graph it will jump upto 53-60 mb/s for a short period and than settle back down, i can keep clicking refresh and it will jump back up and stay there for 5-15 seconds.
I have a realtek nic as my primary but that is only used for management and i have a dual port intel nic that i use for actual data transfers, This nic is Bonded with a D Link DGS 1224T switch that is Layer2 Capable.
My next step is to buy a haswall board and cpu and try that but i am worried that i will end up with the same problems.
