Performance - 100 Mbps

To see how well the DS-106e performed on the LAN, several Iozone runs were made using both a 100 Mbps connection and a 1,000 Mbps connection. (For the complete story on how we test NAS products and on the new test result format, go here.) The 1,000 Mbps tests were run once with 4 K jumbo frames enabled, and one with jumbo frames disabled.

Updated: 11 July 2006 The Write Caching option found in the Hardware Manager admin page was enabled for all tests.

For comparative purposes, test results from a Buffalo Gigabit Linkstation and Thecus YES box 2100 are included in the comparative plots. Note that the dashed line in the graph represents the theoretical maximum speed achievable on a 100 Mbps LAN. The drive used in the box was a 7200-RPM Seagate Barracuda.

The 100 Mbps read test (Figure 19) shows solid results with the DS-106e outperforming the Thecus box in all file sizes and outperforming the Linkstation with larger files.

The 100 Mbps write test shown in Figure 20 also shows the DS-106e easily besting its competitors with rates often 50% higher than those of the Linkstation.
