Thread: data throughput with USB HDD

  1. #1

    data throughput with USB HDD


    does anyone know how much the data throughput at the USB port is?

    most of the network hardware get only 1-3MB read / write speed over LAN to USB, so using a USB HDD is nearly useless ....

    maybe someone can mesure the throughput? or someone know a review?

    I get about 3mb/sec using lightest weight methods like nfs. This is from a usb hd that can do 26mb/sec when connected to a modern linux desktop.

    Throughput on the device with hdparm is about 7-8mb/sec for the hd. On the other hand network traffic using netcat to send /dev/zero is limited to ~6.5mb.

    This is all using Oleg's pre9 firmware.

    with ASUS firmware

    With ASUS firmware i copied a 700mb from the a USB disk via the wireless. I was connected with 130 Mbps.

    With this I was gette about 17MB/sec. I think that's cool.
