USB 2.0 Disks - Super slow performance
I´m using OpenSlug 3.10 Beta with 2 USB 2.0 external disks (1 Maxtor 250GB,
1 WD 320GB) connected via a USB hub.
My problem is that it takes ages (literally) to copy data to/from the disks.
Moving 10GB (large files ~ 500mb) from one disk to the other takes approx 3
Also, if a start 2 cp sessions the performance really go down.
If I have 1 cp session, it takes approx 25% cpu (using top), but if I have 2
simultaneous cp sessions the cpu load goes from ~25% to < 1% / session,
which seems a bit strange(?).... and those 3 hours it took to move 10GB of
data gets closer to 3 weeks (instead of maybe twice the time).
If the disks are directly connected to a windows workstation, it works alot
better (< 30min for 10GB data).
Have anyone else come across this problem?
Any help is appreciated!
