For a while, I've been running WHS on a HP proliant ML110 G5 Duocore-Xeon firstname.lastname@example.orgGHz, 1066FSB, 1GB DDR2 6400 Memory, GB NIC, 3.4TB drivespace on 4 SATA Drives (sys drive is only 250GB).
The add-ins I'm using is:
Disk Management 1.1.2
Squeezebox server 7.4.2 (standalone, starting w services, not really an addin, but key feature for me)
Besides that I am also running utorren w web-GUI. (20 or so torrent seeding)
I am streaming mostly FLAC to 4 different SB'es around the house, and streaming DIVX, ISO's Bluray-rips and other HD-content to my Xtreamer. Every 24h my GF is backing up her laptop w the WHS backuptool.
The servers i SO darn slow, unresponsive and stops doing things randomly, basicly it friggin sucks... POWER-sucks... SB is sluggish, and hacks, navigation sucks and loads slow. Streaming HD material is useless, I have not been able to see one whole movie without random stops yet.
My old dog, debian stable, Dual PIII 1GHz, 1GB SDRAM, does the trick A LOT better, and more (routing, FW, FTP-server, web server w some traffic etc etc..... It never hickups, newer stops, never get unresponsive.. Same content, same jobs..
The ML110 should in my opinion be running circles around the 10 or something year old 133MHZ FSB debain machine..
The PageFile usage is around 1GB at all the time and the processor load is seldom over 5%, including ripping CD->FLAC. WHY IS IT SO darn SLOW?!?!?
Iv'e been noticing that there is almost always 3-5MB/s traffic from and to the sysdrive. And the drive-balance is always recently updated (like 5 mins ago when I am starting the WHS Console.
Could it be to little RAM?
Could it be to little sysdrive/landingspace? (that drive is 16% full so there is at least 150GB of space)
Could one or more drives be damaged?
Im I overseeing things?
PLEASE HALP ME!! I do not want to give the RipNas up, its the best since sliced bread, and I can't live without it!! (if it wasen't for that It would have been Debian all over the place)
I HAVE been reading a lot, and trying things but nothing really have been the solution...
