Just a simple (or perhaps, complicated?) question.
I’ve noticed, that still to this date, there is some performance “issues” when it comes to file transfers in Debian based OS’.
What I mean is:
I can copy a big file in Windows to my QNas and it will transfer stable at 112 Mb/s. But when that same file is copied in PopOS to the NAS, it will run stable at 83 Mb/s.
At first I assumed it was the same old “SMB be slow” thing. But now I am not so sure.
In PopOS, If I copy the same file from the NVMe drive that both PopOS and Windows 10 is located on, onto another NVMe drive formated with NTFS, PopOS will only copy with 336 Mb/s. Windows Will do 982 Mb/s. The second NVMe drive goes through the chipset, the OS drive goes directly to the CPU.
Is this a question of NT filesystems, or is there more to it?
The system is a x570 chipset with a 5800x CPU. So I wouldn’t think it’s a hardware bottleneck in the case of SMB networking.
Is it driver related?
If anyone have an input to this, I would appreciate it.
