Re: More on CPU specs of the ReadyNAS Pro

I recently picked up a cheap Pro Business to finally replace two aging NV+ boxes. E7600 swap plus 4GB mem (this week) really brought the box to life. I've been reading the OS6 threads and I'm not sure if I want to jump on that bandwagon yet ... I'm a programmer and dont mind porting (or back porting) packages, etc - but I need the core to be solid and my data safe.

Re: More on CPU specs of the ReadyNAS Pro

My results going from stock E2160 to E7600 ($30 on eBay). I had already been running 8GB RAM, 8192 MB [6-6-6-18 DDR2]. Also I'm running 6x3TB drives all at 5400RPM.

Actual reading/writing speeds are about 100MB/s both in reading and writing. Reading sometimes slows down, the throughout is not constant, but I blame my PC, even though I am saving on an SSD (it happens after 15-17GB of data transferred so it's not the cache!).

Now some termal stress to confirm the CPU is stable, after all it was not brand new.

And a note: have a look at the factory footprint of the thermal compound... And the CPU was running at 18°C! I sanded a little the heatsink - very fine sandpaper, 1200 - to try and improve it. (Now I'm looking at the picture, there was no thermal compound at all!)



A quick update:
The CPU temperature started from 16°C (Even though have about 18°C by the floor, I'm surprised the CPU stays at that temperature?). I covered the fan and it's now at 38°. The fan is still running at 2000rpm.

That was happening with the old CPU as well. I guess 38°C is still acceptable for the system. Then I stuck a cable tie in the fan to stop it. It took a while for the temperature to reach 60°, at that point the fan, when the cable tie was remove, was spinning at 5000rpm.

Is there a way I can run a stress test on the CPU by SSH? (update: got it from this thread, running it now)

Re: More on CPU specs of the ReadyNAS Pro

Quick question for everyone -

Would it be possible to increase the RAM in our Pros from 2GB to 8GB?

If so, would we get any additional performance benefits? For example, faster buffered disk reads?

Thanks!

Re: More on CPU specs of the ReadyNAS Pro

Wish I had discovered this thread while DDR2 was still cheap! I maxed out my Business Pro at 4GB a few years ago thinking that was the limit. Oh wells...

Odd thing about the CPU upgrade is that the older and slower clocked E6600 and E6700 seem to give better hdparam scores than the newer and higher clocked E7600. Here are my scores:

E2160 (Stock Pentium, 1.80Ghz)
/dev/c/c:
Timing cached reads: 2354 MB in 2.00 seconds = 1177.79 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 1120 MB in 3.00 seconds = 372.82 MB/sec

E7600 (Core 2 Duo, 3.06Ghz)
/dev/c/c:
Timing cached reads: 3960 MB in 2.00 seconds = 1980.20 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 1574 MB in 3.00 seconds = 524.41 MB/sec

E6700 (Core 2 Duo, 2.66Ghz)
/dev/c/c:
Timing cached reads: 9878 MB in 2.00 seconds = 4947.44 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 1554 MB in 3.00 seconds = 517.78 MB/sec

The hdparam scores are pretty dramatic. What does that translate into real world usage? Would the E7600 be better for transcoding and streaming or should I stick with the E6700 given the hdparam scores?

Thanks!

Yes. I noticed this before and we've had some (as-yet inconclusive) discussion about it here. My best guess at the moment is that it's because the E6600 has 4MB of L2 cache while the other chips have only 3MB.

I don't know. I've been very happy with my E6600, but I don't do video transcoding. I suspect that the E7600's higher clock speed (and SSE4.1 instructions) will trump the E6600's cache efficiency, but the easiest way to know for sure would be to try both chips and see.

If you do try both, post your results here. I'm sure many others will be interested.

Re: More on CPU specs of the ReadyNAS Pro

Both these processors work up to 1066FSB, but I think the PRO has an 800Mhz FSB. I wonder if the E7600 has more delay when working at 800Mhz. Maybe it's a bad internal multiplier for that chip or something. I've tried to get info about the real speed the FSB is running at but the kernel we have just doesn't show it in any of the utilities I've installed. Possibly if I hooked up a monitor I could see what the bios reports, but I haven't gotten to it.

Re: More on CPU specs of the ReadyNAS Pro

Has anybody tried an Intel Pentium E6800 (LGA775, 2 Cores, 2M Cache, 3.33 GHz, 1066 FSB, 45 nm, 65 W TDP)? It was cheaper at retail, but currently costs more and is more difficult to find on eBay. Here's are some links to some comparisons:

PassMark C2D E6700 vs C2D E7600 vs Pentium E6800 (Copy and Paste this link)

Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 vs Pentium E6800
Intel Core 2 Duo E7600 vs Pentium E6800

TRANSCODING TEST
I went ahead and performed some rudimentary benchmarks, and it seems that the C2D E7600 performs slightly better at transcoding as expected. I down converted some videos to 720p using ffmpeg for AirVideo 2.0.00. I used this command for all files:
ffmpeg -i FILENAME.EXT -t 300 -vcodec libx264 -crf 23 -preset ultrafast -s hd720 -acodec copy FILENAME_PROCESSOR.mp4 -vstats_file FILENAME_PROCESSOR.txt

This is what ffmpeg reports:

FILE COPY TEST
I wanted to see if there would be any noticeable difference transferring files from share to share, but there wasn't any real difference. I didn't think to get out the stopwatch for precise time measurements, but the log files generated indicte each process completed within five minutes.

28,157 Files, 956 Folders

The real interesting part is when I deleted the subsequent folders with Windows 8.1. I deleted the folders before installing and running the test with the next processor to free up drive space.
Windows hovered around 94 items per second deleting while C2D E6700 was installed.
Windows hovered around 85 items per second deleting while C2D E7600 was installed.

Perhaps there is some merit to the hdparam scores? Not at all scientific, but more to add to the puzzle.

I just upgraded to this RAM kit which I bought used on Ebay. Not seeing any change in performance but that may be on my drives at this point. Will find out soon since they're overdue for replacement.

I did a memory test from the boot menu and was wondering how to interpret the results. It did two passes. First one that passed, then a second. At 100% the second time, it also said Pass. But it stayed at 100% and didn't loop a third time. After about a half hour I had to power off to get out of memory test mode.

I've never run the mem test before and am wondering if this is normal behavior. Is it suppose to work like this? Does this mean my memory is good?

Thanks!

Re: More on CPU specs of the ReadyNAS Pro

I do have a backup, though one of the jobs failed with unusual I/O errors last night.

Since the only change was RAM, I wanted to run the memory test to make sure RAM was good and I'm not seeing a problem with the backup drive like before.

Did the memory test behave properly or is it supposed to loop until stopped?

The problem last time was with the USB drive connected to the ReadyNAS.
viewtopic.php?f=31&t=78258

I'm having trouble with this drive again so maybe it's really starting to go? I can try running fsck on it again and see what it says.

I'm still concerned about the RAM and will send it back if it's bad. I downloaded the logs and it checks out:

Re: More on CPU specs of the ReadyNAS Pro

Did you get a drive utility from samsung with the usb drive? I think there should have been one with it or you can download it from samsung.

FWIW Do you have your usb drives (and NAS) on a battery backup? The corrupt folder you had before looks like what you can get when you have a power outage. I'm sure there are other ways, but that is definitely one way to get there.

Re: More on CPU specs of the ReadyNAS Pro

The USB backup drives are both Seagates. The ReadyNAS is connected to battery backup and so is the attached USB drive, but my logs don't show any recent power outages. The corrupt folder issue was due to Carbon Copy Cloner and was fixed by the developer.

Re: More on CPU specs of the ReadyNAS Pro

I tried an E6850 on a Pro6 with mobo Flame 6 Version 1.1.
It didn't boot.
The E6850 is 3.00ghz core 2 duo 4MB of L2

I returned to the stock E2168 until I try an E6700.
E18 is 1.8ghz Pentium dual-core.

If the E6700 doesn't work on this mobo, I'd appreciate a heads up.

ReadyNAS PRO Pioneer E6700 working E7600 NOT working

Dear All:

Trying to breathe new life into my ageing Pioneer Pros (one is for backups, one is a video streamer)

After successfully upgrading my ReadyNAS Pro Pioneer Edition to e6700 tried an e7600, the display says ReadyNAS, the fan(s?) blow at full speed and nothing happens.

I have two NASes, and I tried two CPUs and both failed.

The motherboard says Flame ver 1.1 and the yellow square sticker says "FA5"

My obvious concern is that the CPUs might have arrived dead.

However, reading through the forums, I recall Chripa mentioning that earlier boards may not support later CPUs.

Any idea whether this particular board revision should support the e7600?

Will a BIOS upgrade potentially fix this problem?

If so, how do I perform one? I understand this is different from the RAIDiator firmware upgrade (I am of course running the latest)

Thanks you so much for your input.

Chirpa - pls help!!!

Re: More on CPU specs of the ReadyNAS Pro

First download the logs, look in bios_ver.log and see if you are already running the latest BIOS. Then if you are running an old BIOS you would need to install the add-on to update the BIOS.

To see what the latest BIOS version is and to get the add-on see http://www.readynas.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=387035#p387035
