    Banana Pi Samba performance testing - help

    Have a look at line 119: https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/master/config/templates/customize-image.sh.template#L119

    SD card performance

    cd /path/to/mountpoint/folder iozone -e -I -a -s 100M -r 1k -r 2k -r 4k -r 16k -r 128k -r 512k -r 1024k -r 16384k -i 0 -i 1 -i 2

    SD card performance

    I used this command to mount with write caching disabled: mount_exfat -o nodev,nosuid,noowners,noasync /dev/disk2s1 testmount still similar output (see attached file "storage-report"). Grml... I then did a very basic sequential test of writing 5GB to get a rough idea of sequential speed with: sh-3.2# time sh -c "dd if=/dev/zero of=testfile bs=100k count=50k && sync" 51200+0 records in 51200+0 records out 5242880000 bytes transferred in 61.054574 secs (85872027 bytes/sec) real 1m2.059s user 0m0.114s sys 0m2.953s So the sequential write speed seems kind of realistic to me (5.242,880000 / 62,059sec = 84,482Mbytes/second) The same command takes on the intenal SSD only 4,7 seconds real time. Wow! But I still don't have any clue why the iozone tests give such unrealistic results on the SD card... Attached file: storage-report.txt

    SD card performance

    I was also really surprised by the numbers. In the Terminal I navigated to a folder on the SD card and then issued the command. In a testing run I could see that there are temporary files created and deleted in that folder. So to me it looks like it was running on the SD Card. I have no idea how to switch caching off on Mac OS. Is there anything else I can do to prove that the test is running on the SD Card? The Card is plugged into the internal SD Card Reader of my MacBook Pro 11,4 (15 inch, mid 2015). EDIT: I‘ll try this, when I get back home after work today: https://superuser.com/questions/113019/is-it-possible-to-disable-write-caching-on-a-usb-mass-storage-device-on-mac-os-x#115640

    SD card performance

    I saw that you tested a SanDisk Extreme Pro 64GB - A2 card with ext4 and didn't get the expected results (https://github.com/ThomasKaiser/Knowledge/blob/master/articles/A1_and_A2_rated_SD_cards.md) I tested my SanDisk Extreme Pro A2 256GB micro with A2 logo (bought beginning of October 2018), formatted ExFAT under MacOS 10.14 (iozone installed via homebrew).

    upgrade jessie to stretch

    No, I didn't run into any problems (not even non-severe ones). I did everything in a differen order though: - I changed /etc/apt/sources.list to point to Debian stretch repositories - apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade - then I did reboot the system - after couple of days I noticed that I maybe should also upgrade the armbian related packages and posted my questions above - I proceeded like pointed out above with upgrading stretch- (and purging jessie-) armbian related packages That was it. System is running nicely thanks to the good work the armbian people do!

    Problems after last kernel update

    Well... At least I did not. Upgraded two Banana Pis without any issues.
  8. If you are using mainline kernel this might help:

    5.35/5.36 bug / questions collection

    Installed 5.38 (mainline) on two Banana Pi. Both have /boot on SD and system (Debian Stretch) on SATA. Both up and running after a reboot (required to activate kernel 4.14.15). No problems so far. I can confirm ~10% CPU load by kworker though. Thanks for Armbian and keep up the good work! EDIT: Sorry, that was misleading: I did not do a fresh install from an image. Both Banana Pi were upgraded from Armbian 5.36
  10. Now that you wrote that, I also remember, that it took quite a while for the „freeze“ to disappear. So all you have to do is being patient ;-)
  11. I also had this problem after updating to 5.36. I then noticed a permission error in /var/log/syslog. Once I corrected the permissions of the appropriate path/file the welcome-screen did not „hang“ anymore with old information. Unfortunately I can‘t remember which path or file I had to change the permissions, but it was clear when I saw the error in syslog. Hope that helps at least for that „hanging“-with-old-information issue.

    upgrade jessie to stretch

    Thank you. I am on NEXT kernel already (4.13.16). Can I do that on a running system just like this: apt-get update apt-get purge linux-jessie-root-next-bananpi apt-get install linux-stretch-root-next-bananapi Edit: is there a reboot required after doing this? I noticed that on your kernel page the proper naming for board support packages for next kernel is missing: https://www.armbian.com/kernel/

    upgrade jessie to stretch

    Hi, I updated my Banana Pi from Debian Jessie to Stretch by changing /etc/apt/sources.list to point to Debian stretch repositories. Now I wonder what needs to be changed in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/armbian.list Inspired by debootstrap-ng.sh (https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/master/lib/debootstrap-ng.sh#L171) I changed the line in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/armbian.list to: deb http://apt.armbian.com stretch main stretch-utils stretch-desktop Is that correct? Is there anything else that needs to be changed?
  14. You also need to check files under /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
  15. How do you access the videos? SMB? DLNA?
