Tuning NAS on Xtreamer Prodigy

I have issue when starting to attach 4TB HDD on Xtreamer Prodify. It won’t be mounted on my old notebook thru USB 3.0.

Then I tried to using built in NAS, I use Gbe but the speed only get 10MBps. I tried to tweak, first tweak I got is to custom the socket option for smbd daemon.

  • Go to directory¬†/system/rtk_rootfs/usr/local/bin/Resource/package/samba/conf
  • Edit¬†smb_anonymous_head.conf file
  • Change the line “socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY SO_SNDBUF=8192 SO_RCVBUF=8192”
  • Restart NAS thru menu

Change the value of SO_SNDBUF and SO_RCVBUF accordingly.

After I put value 32678, the speed is increasing become 13-14MBps. Will update other config value and result.
