Is this the expected outcome from various solutions
on Dec 13, 2014 at 10:10:22 pm

My goal was to have to two machines run and save final cut projects to one disk.
My Setup:
1x Mac Mini w/ TB2
3x SANLink2 to 10-Base T (10gigabit)
1xNetgear 10gig Switch
1xAreca Raid 5 (5 4Terabyte NAS Drives)
The RAID when running BM Speed Disk pegged me at around 600MB/s @ Raid 5 with 5 disks.
IT was too busy at my job to setup my system when it arrived so I took it home to create my own.

Here are my results:
Apple file sharing system, won't allow final cut to run a warning asked for a Local or SAN disk to read/write from. The system while running BM Speed Disk was ~40MB not very helpful.

I then download OS X Server....Tried to get Xsan working...but you need fibre lines to do this. For whatever reason Xsan in the morning was enabled. I called Apple's Enterprise support and they remoted in and spent about an hour and a half. They were baffled, as well as their Pro Apps team. We tried to get the system to run but they never could. They directed me towards their file sharing setup and after we set it up they realized FCPX wasn't able to run.

Next I tried NFS Manager. I followed the steps, and at the end of the Day I was able to get it running. Sadly though my clients were only able to see 125MB/s speeds.

Then I tried a tried a few iscsi solutions and that did the trick. I was looking at around 500/MBs and when one client was connected. With two clients connected and both running FCPX I saw +300/MBs on one the other one around +250/MBs on the other.

I guess my question is, is this the expected outcome?
