Storage / Re: Terastation 5800 - Standby after X time no use
« Last post by Zebraitis on August 14, 2017, 04:19:53 pm »

Well, based on my use, I'm glad I asked these questions.  And I appreciate the responses.

While there can be pro's and cons for various positions on this, I'll consider this thread RESOLVED.

There is no disk spin down enabled in the TS5800.

First, since 100MB throughput is roughly a little over 800Mb, then 900Mb total isn't all that high if other things were going on at the same time.

I didn't realize from your first post that the video was streaming from the Windows system. In that case it makes sense that a backup running at the same time would limit video throughput. I had assumed that the video was from a streaming service such as Netflix.

Since Windows will almost always access file shares on the TeraStation using the SMB protocol then that should be the only one needed on NIC 2 for the backup to run. I would suggest mapping the drive using the IP address of the second NIC rather than TeraStation name. This should help ensure that the traffic is on the desired port.

Storage / Wanted: TS5800 door
« Last post by Zebraitis on August 14, 2017, 03:45:03 pm »
Hi folks.

Well, I have a broken door on my TS5800.  The tabs that should fit in the slots are missing.

I ordered a key hoping that would be sufficient to hold the door on, but no luck.

Does anyone have a non-functional TS5800 that would be willing to be a door donor?

I'll take a door from an RMA'ed unit.  :)

Please PM or email me to work out the details.

Thanks!

That sound like a reasonable answer.

While it would be nice to have that feature, the wake-on-lan / power off features will work for me.

By the way, out of curiosity, when do the disks spin down?  is there a time after no use / no access that they do?

Glad you asked!

My home server is Win10Pro64 w/ 40TB disk space.   Let's just call it a grossly oversized desktop.

My home network is Gig capable, both in the switches, and in the router.  The router is a Linksys EA5800. 

When I run my backup, the Gig NIC on my motherboard seems to get traffic of nearly 900mb (which surprised me as my disk read was only 100MB).

... some overhead, eh?


And the spousal complaint was that while watching video, via wireless (connected to that router)  with data requested from that server, it was buffering... which is understandable.


However, while this may be of background interest, the question still remains:


IF   I have the TeraStation 5800 Ethernet cable direct connected to the "server" ( 5800 NIC 2 to server NIC 2 ) ...  as describe here:  http://en.faq.buffalo-global.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/14140/p/31,33

THEN   what (on the 5800) should be selected on NIC 1, or deselected on NIC 2  to ensure that backup traffic goes from my home server machine directly to the TeraStation?


You will note:  I was able to direct that traffic in my second post...  but I was looking exactly for guidance on what should be selected or not.  Or, for that matter, if the way that I have done this is the correct way to do so... or if there is a different, better way.

Thanks!

Since the new website the links for KB articles have changed.

http://www.buffalotech.com/knowledge-base/cleaning-a-disk-in-windows-7-using-diskpart.exe

That just links to a page describing setting a terastation to sync with amazon s3

Sorry, got the link wrong myself. Here you go:

The TeraStation is designed for a business environment where it is expected to be running all the time and therefore doesn't have any sort of idle timeout.

I'm trying to understand your network first. What is your "home server"? How does backing up the server affect internet streaming traffic? Are you using an older wireless router?
