Benchmarks: CrystalDiskMark 3.0

Although we saw strong performance when uploading and downloading a 6GB ISO file from the Synology DS2411+, the CrystalDiskMark synthetic benchmark provides slightly different results when running the sequential read/write test.

Here the write performance is extremely fast, showing heavy utilization of Link Aggregation, but the reads are much lower than the limits of a single Gigabit Ethernet connection. The DS2411+ was also a bit slower than the DS1511+ and DS411+ when comparing read performance.

The random 512K performance trends are similar to those seen when testing the sequential performance and again the DS2411+ was a bit slower than the DS1511+.

The Synology DS2411+ again ranked lower than the DS1511+ when measuring random 4K-QD32 performance, but it still outpaced cheaper models such as the DS411+.
