Ubuntu Server Backup
« on: 04-21-2010, 18:05:34 »
I just built a Ubuntu based server, and I want to use it as a home network backup, storage server. I can get on the server from other computers, but transfering files takes a good deal of time. Is there anything you can think of that would cause slow transfer?

I have 3:
1TB drives SATA
2.6Ghz Dual Core
6GB RAM

any thoughts?

What does "a good deal of time" is ?
For which file size ?

What is your network?
Wifi, 100Mb Ethernet, 1Gb Ethernet?
What protocol do you use to transfer files, samba, nfs, ftp ?

All of this have an impact.
To give you an estimate, I use an old Pentium dual 2 Ghz with 4 Gb ram and 5 SATA2 1To hdd with stripping in my NAS, over an wired 1Gb lan Ethernet network.
