What effect the "Power Mode" option

#1

Post by Knappe » 07 Feb 2016 12:29

in settings System Advanced (10.2.0.2 - Prester (revision 2268)) ?

Set to "minimum" the throughput of a 1 GB file copy from a Win7 client to N4F is 11-12 MB/s.
Set to "maximum" it increase up to 53 MB/s (and more with an OSX client).

Maybe a moderator can explain the technical reasons for that ?

It controls the BSD system power control utility, powerd
see here: http://www.zoonsweb.nl/wiki/doku.php?id ... m_advanced
and here: https://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?powerd
"maximum Choose the highest performance values.
minimum Choose the lowest performance values to get the most power
savings."

Set it to adaptive and you get a great balance between performance and power consumption.
