I’m very happy with Nextcloud on my Rapsberry Pi 3 with NextcloudPI. Ease of installation (NetxcloudPI) and ease of use (Nextcloud + Android apps) is very satisfying!
The only annoyance I have is that the performance seems to be lacking when I want to see my pictures. Storage is on a new, external HDD. It can take “just” 2 seconds, most of the times between 5 to 10 seconds and often even longer. This is the same over the internet as on at home.
What performance could be expected with Nextcloud on a RP3? I know there are many elements that come into play (speed of HDD, internet connection, …), but what should I investigate?
I cannot say that NC 13 makes a difference. I know RP3 is not a high-end server, so I don’t expect top speed. But I have no clue what to expect. I promote Nextcloud & RP, but when I show a slide show to others, it gets thumbed down because lack of “fluency”.
