Premiere Pro CS6 writes slow to Terrablock, but Finder writes fast.

I've recently discovered that writing Prores422 QT files to our 48TB Terrablock is noticeably slower than writing to an internal sata hard drive. We have 3 Macs with OSX 10.7.5 connected via Fibre all yielding similar results. As far as I can tell this is strictly a premiere issue (finder transfers files much quicker to the Terrablock than an internal drive), but I thought I'd post here to see if any other Terrablock owners have come across this issue. I'm on Terrablock Version 5.5.1.

Only thing I can think of is it must be something to do with QT being 32bit, PPRO being 64bit and using a Mac based program to write to a Windows based server. Maybe there is some translation software along the line slowing things down?

Anyone else noticed this?

p.s. I've run Blackmagic's disc speed test and the Terrablock reads/writes around 200+MB/s and my internal is around 60MB/s.

Chad,

It would be best to take a look at the system event log to see what may be happening on the server side. There were some performance tweaks specific for Premiere as well so we may want to recommend an upgrade.

Instructions to save the event log below:

Windows XP:
1. Right-Click on "My Computer" and Choose "Manage"
2. Click "Event Viewer" (on the Left side of the window)
3. Right-Click "System" and Click "Save Log File As"

Windows 7

1. Right-Click on "Computer" and Choose "Manage"
2. Click "Event Viewer" (on the Left side of the window)
3. Under Event Viewer open Windows Logs
4. Right-Click "System" and Click "Save All Events As"


You can e-mail to matt@facilis.com
