Ready NAS3200 Slooooowwww backups

Hi all. I inherited a couple of ReadyNAS 3200's when I took over this department. I'm trying to start backing them up, and am running into an issue.

Specs:
ReadyNAS 3200 v1
FW: RAIDiator 4.2.24
RAM: 4096MB
Consumed: 73% of 9223 GB

Over a week ago I set up 3 backups of separate shares in this device targeting another NAS on the same switch. I can manually copy stuff at high speeds with no problem. But these jobs are still running after a week (1/5/15). I look on the target and there are still no files there. But the status is still "Running". I do not have encryption enabled. The target is an Rsync Server using a FQDN for the Host. Connection tests fine.

This is way too slow.

This is a production system (critical file share) so I'm hesitant to start upgrading firmware without being absolutely certain it will fix this.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Updating the firmware to the latest version 4.2.27 might help. Check this link: http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/25755

What version of Rsync is on the destination NAS?

You can see the version of Rsync used by the ReadyNAS in the GPL: http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2649/~/gpl-open-source-code-for-programmers

I find Rsync works best when the versions are the same on both NAS units.

4.2.24 has Rsync 3.0.9

Thanks for your comments.

I didn't consider Rsync, I'll have to check. But I bet the target (a new Synology RackStation) will be newer.

Another argument for firmware. Le sigh.

Thanks!

Rsync is very slow at doing a full backup.

Are you able to test backing up a test share with a group of small files using Rsync to see if that works?
