UNRAID Receive Side Scaling

By April 14, 2017Networking

Receive Side Scaling in UNRAID is currently not possible. This may be a determining factor when considering this for your NAS. Samba 3 supports Multi Channel which allows you to use multiple gigabit Ethernet adapters from mixed manufactures to blast out the stream. You will need RSS support on your adapter to support this, which unfortunately UNRAID does not support, and clearly…should. If you can run RSS between Linux and Windows, then why can’t the Lime guys figure it out too?
