It was a single big file ~4 GB.

The transfer rate 17 - 22 Mb/s is when I uploaded the file to NAS. When I downloaded from server to my Windows 8.1 computer

transfer rate was badly, 13 Mb/s... Transfer 1.8 GB from a RAM disk....the same transfer rates.

 

Today I checked the transfer-rate from my freshly installed debian-stretch NanoPI-NAS (only debian with armbian-config installed SAMBA-Server).

From my HP6005 Win10 PC to the NanoPi Neo2 NAS via 5-Port DLINK DGS-1005D Switch and I do get a Rate of 34-36.3MB/sec

 

I also installed debian-stretch now on my first NanoPi NAS (Ubuntu Xenial without armbian-config deleted) and did get the same MB/sec

and mine as JMS561

the JMS561 is listed as USB3.0 Bridge while the JMS567 is listed as USB3.1

BUT the JMS561 has more than one SATA Channel which the JMS567 doenst seem to have ( http://www.jmicron.com/product0201.html ):

USB3.0 to dual SATA with RAID series
JMS561 Super Speed USB3.0 to Dual SATA gen III Ports with RAID bridge controller
JMS561 is a Supper Speed to Dual-SATA Gen III Ports bridge chip. It integrated 2 independent SATA channels and a micro-processor. With proper setting, the chip can be configured as 1 to 2- ports Serial ATA III Port Multiplier or hardware striping & mirror.

vs

USB 3.1 Gen1 (5Gbps)
JMS576 USB 3.1 Gen1 to SATA 6Gb/s Bridge Controller for USB Type-C
JMS576 is a USB 3.1 Gen1 to SATA 6Gb/s bridge controller with Integrated USB Type-C Multiplexer & Device CC control logic for USB Type-C storage solution. It has high performance and low power consumption by advanced low power process. It can support external SPI NVRAM for Vendor VID/PID of USB 2.0/USB 3.1 Gen1 device controller. There are 10 GPIOs to do customization for various applications. It supports software utilities for downloading the upgraded firmware code under USB 2.0/USB 3.1 Gen1.

Note for the JMS567 the sentence:
It can support external SPI NVRAM for Vendor VID/PID of USB 2.0/USB 3.1 Gen1 device controller.

No, you still confuse 576 with 567 ;)

 

Oops :) OK - I see at the JMicron page isnt a JMS567 :) my fault reading "to fast"
Yes - JMS567 is only USB3.0 - so I hadnt to wonder about the USB3.1 from the JMS576

USB3.0 to single SATA Series
JMS567 Super Speed USB 3.0 & SATA III 6.0Gbps Bridge Controller-3.3Vcc
MS567 is a low power consumption and high performance USB 3.0 to SATA 6.0Gbps (bit per second) Bridge controller. A variety of IC package types, such as LQFP48 7x7, QFN48 6x6, QFN48 7x7 and LQFP64 10x10, are provided for an application diversity of data storage devices.

This differentiation makes no sense since OMV sits on top of a Debian (be it Armbian or the Debian image FriendlyELEC uses -- main difference is most probably that the Armbian variant contains a lot more performance and other tweaks)

 

This OMV here https://sourceforge.net/projects/openmediavault/files/Other armhf images/OMV_3_0_90_Nanopineo2_4.13.10.img.xz/download is based on latest Armbian Jessie with pretty recent u-boot and kernel while FriendlyELEC's OMV uses stuff from the beginning of this year. Maybe that's the difference?

 

In case you've another SD card I would be really interested in results from our new OMV image since also your NAS performance numbers are horribly low. Please be aware that for SSH login to be enabled for root you need to use OMV web UI (either 'permit root login' on the SSH service tab or create a new users in the UI being member of sudo and ssh groups)

 

 

Something strange about my board and my attempt to move root file system to USB stick or

SSD. I tried with two SD different cards, two different USB 3.0 sticks and even with a small partition

on a SSD .

 

After I used nand-sata-install I can't login through command line and OMV web interface, too.

 

I used image recommended above. The FriendlyARM image don't have this tool included and

is bigger.

 

You have any idea?

And with the new official OMV image you'll most probably reach or exceed 40MB/s since a few more performance tweaks are active there.

 

Another SD card, the third, 32 GB class 10, with latest OMV image.

 

Upload ~ 20 Mb/s

 

Download ~ 40 Mb/s

 

Temp ~ 52 degree Celsius (front shield from NAS kit isn't mounted due to often SD card tests)

 

I will try to use 'nand-sata-install' to move root fs to a ~ 3 Gb partition on SSD since

I have no success with any SanDisk Ultrafit 32 Gb USB 3.0 (two different sticks).

 

Oh, by the way, tests are made with Thomas network recommendation: client and server conected

through my TP-Link switch...

The same problem when I try to move root file system to SSD.

After whole process was finished the script ask for reboot.

 

After reboot I can't login neither with putty nor OMV through

web interface.

 

It is anything to do before I use 'nand-sata-install' script?

Did you have with the .37 a static IP for the OMV? Or did you check another IP?

 

While Installation Image didnt work for you this way - you could try out the way I used for a Ordoid C2 with emmc and sdcard while not having a adpater for the emmc module:

You could try to dd a image of the sdcard to the emmc:

1.) boot from sd-card
2.) insert a USB-Stick with a .img file of the sdcard (or armibian/OMV .IMG) in the USB-Port
3.) mkdir /mnt/sda1
4.) mnt /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1
5.) dd if=/mnt/sda1/[name_of_the_image].img of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=1M && sync
6.) to be sure: sync [+ENTER-key) again 
7.) shutdown -h now
8.) remove sdcard
9.) power on - should now boot via emmc
