Performance - 1 Gbps LAN

The test with gigabit LAN connection resolved the mixed read results, but not in the 323's favor! Figures 22 and 23 show write and read results for "standard" mode, with the 323 besting the HP Media Vault by a healthy margin for write. But while the 323 starts out with off-the-chart read performance for a 32 MB file size, it drops below the Media Vault for the remaining file sizes.

The JBOD (Figures 24 and 25) and RAID 1 (Figures 26 and 27) plots follow a similar pattern with the 323 clearly winning the write battle, but losing to the HP Media Vault for reads.
