Intel NAS Performance Toolkit
The Intel NAS Performance Toolkit (Intel NASPT) is a file system exerciser and analysis tool designed to enable performance comparisons between network-attached storage (NAS) devices.
For our tests, we will show the DS1019+ compared to the DS918+ and DS1618+ which we have reviewed earlier running on a 1GbE network. These three NAS’s compare well to each other except the DS1618+ which can run on a 10GbE system, with an appropriate expansion card. All three NAS’s can run the same OS DSM 6.2 and offer the same apps that run through the Package Center.
1GbE Unencrypted Storage Testing
We begin our testing with standard RAID levels that all three NAS’s can run using built-in 1GbE networks. We are going to show the charts then discuss after. These are fairly self-explanatory.
Not surprising, all three NAS’s are capable to max out the 1GgE network connections. We did not use the NVMe SSD’s read/write cache drives in our tests.
Next, we are going to show our encrypted folder results.
1GbE Encrypted Folder Results
All three NAS’s allow encrypting folders which we will use here in these tests. Again, since the results are so close, we are going to discuss after the charts.
As in our first set of tests, we find the results of encryption tests to be close, within the margin of error. Generally, the Synology DS1019+ came out on top, but these NAS units are being bottlenecked by 1GbE performance.
Now that we have tested the DS1019+ let us move on to the DSM management and our conclusion.
