    Ah, yes my mistake
    @Antiloop:can you correct the thread title? thanks
    I've installed it.. and the IDE speed was increased by 5%.
    How did you measure that?

  4. #4
    My measurement was wrong.

    I looked at the 100mb network connection... (task manager)

    First it was 14% of 100Mb/s and now 19%..

    so actualy it's 30% increase of speed. Forgive me if i'm wrong

    Do we compare apples with pears?

    A increase of the network load by 5% (from 14% to 19%) doesn't neccessary have anything to do with an increase of the IDE (read/write) speed.
    In the worst case this could be due to network problems. (retransmits, more overhead, smaller packet size, etc.)

    Could you please give us more details on how you messured this?
    How dit you generate the network traffic?
    What volume of data dit you send/copy to the WL-HDD?
    How were the network settings before and after?
    etc.

    If it ends up to be a 'real' increase (30%) of transported content, this would in deed be very impressive and should ease the problems of streaming video content a lot!!!

    I guess he 'measured' it with taskmanager under Windows XP which you can't use for serious benchmarking IMHO.

    I did measure it in taskmanager, but i noticed after upgrade to the new firmware, a shorter time to copy and read files from the harddisk.

    Did not write the times down..

    TASKMANAGER
    How dit you generate the network traffic?
    100Mb FILE Write to HDD and same file read
    What volume of data dit you send/copy to the WL-HDD?
    See previous question..
    How were the network settings before and after?
    SAME

    Did you reformat your drive to ext3?

    Some other guys also reported better disk performance. Whereas mine got slower!

    Here's how you normally measure raw hdd performance:

    Code:
    # /tmp/harddisk/part1/conf/bin/busybox time dd if=/dev/zero of=/tmp/harddisk/part2/testfile bs=16k count=16384 
    
    raw write speed 3.5MB/sec (was 3.8MB/sec with 1.1.2.8) 
    16384+0 records in 
    16384+0 records out 
    real    1m 13.91s 
    user    0m 0.35s 
    sys     0m 33.33s 
    # 
    # 
    # /tmp/harddisk/part1/conf/bin/busybox time dd if=/tmp/harddisk/part2/testfile of=/dev/null bs=16k 
    
    raw read speed 6.2MB/sec (was 9.1MB/sec with 1.1.2.8)
    16384+0 records in 
    16384+0 records out 
    real    0m 41.20s 
    user    0m 0.16s 
    sys     0m 17.21s 
    #
    [Update]
    Yes indeed! The ext3 filesystem is much faster.

    here we go:
    Code:
    # /tmp/harddisk/part1/conf/bin/busybox time dd if=/dev/zero of=/tmp/harddisk/part1/testfile bs=16k count=16384 
    
    raw write speed 5MB/sec (was 3.8MB/sec with 1.1.2.8) 
    16384+0 records in 
    16384+0 records out 
    real    0m 50.72s 
    user    0m 0.35s 
    sys     0m 46.90s 
    # 
    # 
    # /tmp/harddisk/part1/conf/bin/busybox time dd if=/tmp/harddisk/part1/testfile of=/dev/null bs=16k 
    
    raw read speed 11.2MB/sec (was 9.1MB/sec with 1.1.2.8) 
    16384+0 records in 
    16384+0 records out 
    real    0m 22.66s 
    user    0m 0.18s 
    sys     0m 18.04s

    hi,
    I measured the raw speed...

    Code:
    # /tmp/harddisk/part1/conf/bin/busybox time dd if=/dev/zero of=/tmp/harddisk/part1/testfile bs=16k count=16384
    16384+0 records in
    16384+0 records out
    real    0m 54.34s
    user    0m 0.31s
    sys     0m 47.12s
    
    4,7 MB/sec writing
    
    
    # /tmp/harddisk/part1/conf/bin/busybox time dd if=/tmp/harddisk/part1/testfile of=/dev/null bs=16k
    16384+0 records in
    16384+0 records out
    real    0m 27.85s
    user    0m 0.25s
    sys     0m 17.60s
    
    9,2 MB/sec reading
    ..that is imo pretty good ! I formattet the disc with ext3 and I have no WLAN and UPnP-Advertising is disabled.

    @JockW2001
    What HDD do you have installed in your WL-HDD?

    @Petgun
    Is your file system formated as ext3?

    Unhappy Network Neighborhood / Samba

    After upgrade to firmware v1.2.3.0 the [Network Neighborhood] with [Apply rules in shared node] doesn't work anymore. I can't connect with a windows XP machine. I tried [net use ..] and [map network drive] in windows explorer. Firmware 1.1.2.8 works fine. In this new firmware I have to disable security and use the guest account or [share all partitions in disk].

    Does anyone have the same problem and a solution?

  15. #15
    You might want to try this: install my 1.1.2.8 custom firmware, it has Samba 3.0.9 and afaik works fine. Next you upgrade to 1.2.3.0 and put the script below in /tmp/harddisk/part1 and call it init.sh. Also put "init.sh" in the "initial script" textbox of the Storage Setting menu of the web interface.

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh 
    /tmp/harddisk/part1/conf/bin/telnetd -d -l /tmp/harddisk/part1/conf/bin/mysh 
    
    mount -o bind /tmp/harddisk/part1/conf/etc/ /etc 
      
    cd /tmp/harddisk/part1/conf/bin 
    
    # start userspace NFSv3 daemon 
    mkdir /var/lib 
    mkdir /var/lib/nfs 
    cp /etc/exports /var/lib/nfs/etab 
    ./portmap 
    ./mountd 
    ./unfsd 
    
    # start FTP daemon 
    #killall -9 stupid-ftpd 
    #./vsftpd & 
      
    # start Samba 3.0.9 daemon 
    killall -9 nmbd 
    killall -9 smbd 
    ./nmbd -s /tmp/harddisk/part1/conf/usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf -D 
    ./smbd -s /tmp/harddisk/part1/conf/usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf -D
    PS: vsftpd is commented out fttb. I need the 1.2.3.0 GPL sourcecode in order to build it in.
