[PVE-User] pve-user Digest, Vol 59, Issue 22

Hello,

 

The problem with iSCSI on FreeNAS and FreeBSD is that they use the software ISTGT.

It’s not the fastest and some important features are still missing.

However, I think the FreeNAS team has made some additional progress on ISTGT but I’m not sure.

 

I believe both Openindiana and Solaris use COMSTAR which is supposed to be a very fast and stable iSCSI framework.

 

From what I’ve read there is little difference with NFS and iSCSI regarding speed. 

The main benefit with NFS is that is much more easy to work with and more difficult to screw up.

                             

 

BR

Ola

Hello Fabio 

 

thank you for your will to compare open-source NAS sw 

I will defintely read (and learn from) your results.

But I'm just wondering why is FreeNAs ISCSI so bad ?

form my expirience  iscsi was little faster than nfs ...

 

What kind of tests showed that NFS a way better than iscsi ?

 

thank you very much in advance and

 

srdačan pozdrav / best regards

Someone uses NAS4Free as storage for Proxmox ?!?

I have tried most of the NAS solutions out there, and then some more:-)

NAS4Free: Stable but the GUI is not so polished. NFS is fine but ISCSI
sucks. Based on FreeBSD 9.1. Developed by an OSS community.
FreeNAS: Stable and a nice GUI. NFS is fine but ISCSI sucks. Based on
FreeBSD 8.3. Backed by a company so payed support is available.
Openfiler: Project is abandoned.
Openmediavault: Very young and more or less a one mand project. Quit
stable but not a race horse. Based on Debian Stable.
FreeBSD: Same problem, and who wonders, as with FreeNAS and NAS4Free.
Developed by an OSS community.
OpenIndiana with napp-it: Same as with all the FreeBSD based systems,
horrible ISCSI performance on-top of ZFS.

But we seems to have a winner:
Ominios with napp-it: Blazingly fast ZFS and rock stable ISCSI as well.
I am in the middle of conducting a serious performance test which I
gladly will publish on this list/forum if somebody wants to read it?

Nice list.

I googled Omnios... no results. Is there a homepage for the project?

Certainly: http://omnios.omniti.com/

An also for those interested omnios is also backed by a commercial
entity for which payed support is available:

I am very interested!
Please also shows the details of virtualization solutions on which you 
performed the test.
