terastation very slow
« on: May 10, 2018, 03:28:07 am »
Our old TeraStation TS-RXLB08 became very slow.
When we access it via browser before asking for credentials it loads 10-15 minutes with this screen:

then after entering credentials it loads for 10-15 minutes:

Then when we try to do something, session expires.
How to investigate it further?

enable email notification
reboot and check the drivestatus
maybe you have a demaged disk
the securest way is to open ssh and start a long selvetest for each drive

The point is that it's too slow.
While it's loading, session expires.
I am unable to login to allow ssh access or email notifications.

It's almost certainly a failing drive that the system hasn't detected. If possible, shut it down and pull the drives one at a time and attach them to a PC. Use a program like CrystalDisk Info to pull the SMART information. It is likely this will reveal which drive is failing, then you can just replace that drive.
