slow upload

Hi @Rothammel

I wouldn’t call it slow, but rather what you should expect. I tested it with my server by uploading a few Linux ISOs (I didn’t have a 100GB file at hand :wink: ) and I get similar transfer speeds. Maybe others here have some tips how to optimize this a bit more, or you can search the forum for similiar threads. But you will not get the full 1Gbit or whatever the raw bandwith of your network is. That much I can say for sure.

oh no, in the past I had a version 21 installation with an i5 and zpool, zfs + raidz.
and with the zfs stuff and so on, it performed very well:

Why php-fpm used so much cpu power?
And why did so many processes with pool Nextcloud run in the past and now only one?

That’s indeed much better and near line speed… I’m not an expert when it comes to this and there are many factors involved. Network, storage, CPU, memory, webserver, PHP (caching, chunk size etc). Perhaps other forum participants have tips for you on how you can optimize this… Or try search the forums. The performance topic comes up here from time to time…

updates my friends:
write speed with smb running on the VM:
smb nmon

its not linespeed, but not so bad
