  1. Hello Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but I try. I try to understand SAN and how to expand the storage. Say I got some storage over iSCSI connected to my storage server and the LUN is 200GB. The Storage server share out to clients over AFP and Samba, lets call the share for "Storage" This is all good, but sometime the 200GB wil be used. I can add another LUN from another iSCSI unit to the Storage server, but then it will be an new share. Is it a way to expand the "Storage" share so I get more free space but the end users sees it as one share?
  2. At an price of almost 200$, I wish the Atto solution had an trial too.
  3. Did some Xbench tests, storage shared over SanMP: Results 8.38 System Info Xbench Version 1.3 System Version 10.7.2 (11C74) Physical RAM 16384 MB Model iMac12,2 Drive Type SYNOLOGY iSCSI Storage Disk Test 8.38 Sequential 5.72 Uncached Write 140.51 86.27 MB/sec [4K blocks] Uncached Write 95.30 53.92 MB/sec [256K blocks] Uncached Read 39.21 11.47 MB/sec [4K blocks] Uncached Read 1.52 0.77 MB/sec [256K blocks] Random 15.67 Uncached Write 178.78 18.93 MB/sec [4K blocks] Uncached Write 175.32 56.13 MB/sec [256K blocks] Uncached Read 1576.76 11.17 MB/sec [4K blocks] Uncached Read 4.11 0.76 MB/sec [256K blocks] And here is some results from Ubuntu:
  4. I found it out. Synology DSM have an security on the LUNs that don't allow more than one initiator to connect to the same LUN at same time. Had to edit the LUN to allow more initiators to connect. Nice feature
  5. Hi yesterday I tried SanMP with my 1511 box and 2 macs. But then I tried to connect with the 2nd mac I got an error that not more than one could connect to the iSCSI target. Is this an limit in SANMP trial or is this an Synology limit? I run my iSCSI target as an file, as I use my 1511 for NAS purposes too.
  6. Hi all Testing on my iMac27" 2011 and 1511+, moving an 4GB movie file to the iSCSI partition, takes 2mins. Copy it back to the mac, takes 2hours.....
  7. I have some sumular issues, but with 10.5 server. If I transfer large files or large folders (like 100GB) it suddenly disconect the iSCSI target. I run FreeNAS0.7 64bit on an inten i3, ISCSI connented to my 10.5 server and shared from there over afp to my other macs.
