I’ve been using the quad sata kit on a raspberry pi 4 8gb model and so far I’m happy with it.
Still, there are some things that are still bothering me and I can’t find a way to fix that on my own.
I’m using four wd red 1tb disks in a raid5. I’ve installed OMV5 and whenever I want to transfer something with samba, the transfer rate has a maximum of 10 to 11 mb/s. Is there a way to increase the transfer rate?
Also, I would like to keep track of the disk temperatures. As mentioned in the forum, the problem with the temperature display can be solved with the firmware update. Since this is not yet recommended, I wanted to solve the problem with smartctl. That, in turn, doesn’t work either and I get the following message:
SMART support is: Available - device has SMART capability. SMART support is: Enabled SMART Status not supported: Incomplete response, ATA output registers missing
Could this be due to the usb bridge? Or is there an update to the firmware issue?
