Hey all,

I've been playing around with a recently purchased version of NASLite+ 1.5 and am confused by the different transfer rates between the different protocols. FTP is by far the most consistent, with writes saturating my client's NIC, reads are about 75% utilization. When using Samba (SMB), the write rate is pretty good (throughput varies, but overall the transfer is pretty fast), but the read rates are just downright slow.

I've been reading through many of the postings in this forum and it seems like since v2.0 came out the fast write/slow read issues haven't resurfaced.

Should I update to 2.x (I can't believe I didn't purchase 2.x the first time... pushed the wrong button I guess)? Will it help the SMB read rate with no change in hardware?

Thanks for any insight!

Well I couldn't wait for a response and decided to purchase the upgrade to 2.0.5. I'm happy to pass along that all is good now. I can stream an HD MPEG transport stream to my Roku Labs HD player without a problem. I'm probably pretty close to the limits of the hardware on this older system... but that can be taken care of over time.

FYI: The SMB read rates are about 3x as fast compared with NASLite v1.5.
