What transfer speeds should I expect?

Amahi uses Samba, which is a top notch file server. There is no general answer for this, because are many factors involved in a network transfer, for example:

  • Type of network (10/100/1000 wired, wireless, etc.)
  • speed of the drives involved
  • client OS used
  • cables used (cat4, cat5, cat6)
  • switches or hubs used
  • chipset used by the clients and the server

On a typical home network with a 1000Mbps network you may expect to get around 11MB/s (megabytes per second) reads and about 10MB/s writes.
