there seems to be some discussions int he past relating to Mac osx and cifs perfomance but i cant seem to see if ther ehave been any recent posts to advise if the issues have been resolved
- Data copy rate from Netapp to MacBook is 1MB/sec, Data copy rate from NETAPP01 to Win 7 PC is 80MB/sec. Data copy rate from old NetGear NAS to MacBook is 8MB/sec, Data copy rate from old NetGear NAS to Win 7 PC is 90MB/sec. Both MacBook and PC have a Gbit connection to our Network
We have done some searching on the matter too, and agree the problem is pretty prevalent. We have tried some of the basic stuff we found. Our Filer NETAPP01 is enabled for SMB2, so we have tried forcing SMB1 using the CIFS:// prefix in place of SMB:// but to no avail.
the performance to the Macs is significantly slower than it was on our old Netgear 2100 NAS. It iis causing crashes on the MACS accessing files on the NETAPP. We believe it must be a protocol thing, and we hope that Netapp can at least provide configuration to match the old Netgear NAS.
has anyone else had issues with this and does anyone have any documention or advise for a workaround
