QNAP TS-639 Pro Turbo NAS Part 4

This is part #4 of my journey to QNAP TS-639 Pro Turbo NAS. This is an awesome piece of hardware!
Now that I have sticked my 2 new Western Digital VelociRaptor Enterprise, built a RAID0, and created an iSCSI target and LUN, it’s time to do some baseline tests with my favourite I/O tool, that is IOMeter.

Here is my test environment:
– A DELL lappy running W7 Ultimate x64bit connected through the onboard gigabit NIC set to FULLDUPLEX/Gb to a DLINK DIR-855 Gb switch.
– A QNAP TS-639 Pro Turbo NAS using a single NIC, set to FULLDUPLEX/Gb with default MTU (1500) also connected my DLINK DIR-855 Gb switch.
– IOmeter v2006.07.27 and Dynamo running on my lappy, 1 worker, 1000000000 sectors, all access specifications, running for one hour.

Now let’s see the results.

So +890 IOPS is not that bad at all for SATA drives! Next big tests would be iSCSI over jumbo frame and over NFS, and why not for both of iSCSI and NFS tests use LACP if my switch permits it but that’s for another post so stay tuned!

    Hi Coffee_err, to becnhmark NFS you need tools like HD Tune Pro or IOzone. Havea look at this post: https://deinoscloud.wordpress.com/2009/12/30/benchmark-tools-what-i-use/

    Also I have tested NFS performances on a the new TS-459, check out this post for results: https://deinoscloud.wordpress.com/2010/01/10/qnap-ts-459-review/
