Using Raspberry Pi as a NAS

I have a raspberry pi running my home PBX, I had a friend ask me what is a good nas so I said hey try a pi… There was some questions about if would preform well as the Ethernet and USB are shared… from what my speed tests show it’s not an issue.


Media Transfer over samba to a USB HDD


If you try this let me know what you get for speeds and transfer rates.


also after this test I set the maximum speed for Samba to 85mbit/s so my voip phones have more then enough bandwidth for phone calls.
