    file xfer from Windows laptop to NAS VIA an intermediate VM !!! FAST


    Hi Network GURUS

    Any idea why for 20GB of video transfer from a Windows laptop (OS on SSD) to my NAS (because of Networking problems with the latest version of Windows Fast ring release) I had to logon to a Windows QEMU/VM running on the NAS to transfer the files successfully and was getting around 110 MB/s (yes MB/s not Mib/s) for the xfer --- over Wifi too !!

    so from the Windows VM -- access the laptop and then send the data to the HOST NAS (couldn't use the laptop directly as it can't see the NAS) --- networking issues with the fast release build although Windows-->Windows is no problem.

    Normally I've had from Windows networking when it IS working typical speeds from Windows Native machine to NAS of only around 30 MB/s.

    The wizardry of Windows Networking !!!! -- never thought using an Intermediate VM in the middle would speed things up around 3 - 4 times !!!

    Any ideas on this one or is it again a bit of "Gandalf the Wizard" !!!!

    so Windows Native (when working) to NAS around 29 Mb/s
    Windows qemu/KVM connect to W10 laptop and then send files to NAS around 110 MB/s !!

    seems bonkers to me to have to do it like this but I really think Windows Networking IS basically Bonkers anyway -- always random whether it works or not !"

    Cheers

    110MBps does seem fast but I've never gotten a handle on whether it's MBps or Mbps is meant. [I'm of the old school where b = bits and B = Bytes, 8 bits = 1 Byte] Also wondered what processes Windows is using in all its security features about whether they interfere with the transfers where a VM process doesn't.

    Hi there
    @Berton

    Usually MB/s is megabytes / sec and Mib/s (or sometimes Mb/s where the "b" is in lower case is Mega bits/sec.

    Some of this though is "deliberate Obfuscation" by companies etc to confuse consumers as to what they are really paying for.

    Where I live now on fibre optic cable we can get 10 Gb/s -- 10 Giga-Bits not Bytes -- but that still equates to around 1GB/s -- however to actually get that throughput is quite hard as a load depends on the actual demand for example of target web site servers -- and even if you use torrents (there's 100% legitimate use for these e.g a lot of linux distos are often distributed via torrents to save load on their servers) the speed will depend on the number of seeds etc.

    In general though looking at ISP advertising etc it's all part of a general "Dumb downing" of things, lower educational standards and generally the rise of "Chav" culture though -- although I prefer the Chavs at least to the hideous Wokes !!!!.

    I understand, we all have out toys but for me it depends upon affordability. Mine used to be the practical use of firearms but in my more-advanced age and not having reliable heirs sold most of them, my son did get 2 but doesn't need more.
