NAS How To

Using the Charts

Results are imported into the NAS Chart Database. The default view shows the Windows File copy benchmark, which is common to the current and previous test suites. The color of the bar indicates the version of test process used.

Figure 3 shows a cropped view of the NAS Chart in its default view. Other benchmarks are accessed using the Select benchmark dropdown.

Filters can be used to narrow the products shown. Filters are "sticky" and remain applied when you change benchmarks. So you may need to clear them if you get odd results.

Discontinued products are moved to the Archive and hidden by default. Clicking on the Archived Products [Switch to show] link will display them. This control is "sticky" and will remain applied when you change benchmarks.

The Features button displays detailed product information including noise level, power consumption, processor, memory and more. Data for up to four products can be shown simultaneously in table format

The Benchmark Summary button produces a summary of all benchmark results for a single product selected via checkbox.

The Price vs. Performance button generates a plot of product price vs. the selected performance benchmark (Figure 4). Note that it does not take into account NAS capacity so does not represent price / MB or GB. Mousing over a product icon will display the product name, model number, performance value and price.
