    sad fact, i have to switch to linux because USB2 disk is too slow on BSD


    Hi,

    I tried everything to get my new 1T USB2 disk to run at more than 8M/s on BSD, but i can't get it to run faster.

    On the same exact config linux give me up to 50M/s, so even thought i really like BSD i will switch that home server to linux just for the better USB2 transfer rate.

    SAD.

    It is unclear why BSD gels so poorly with USB drives and USB sticks: performance is subpar and the OS becomes unstable at times. It is only recently that USB images came out that allow one to install BSD from a stick, but even that is hardly worth it for performance reasons.

    how did you try to get your disk to run at more than 8M/s on BSD? and what the version of bsd do you use?

    The USB stack has been rewritten for 8.0. Did you try 8.0? I don't have any USB2 flash disks or HDDs around to test on my 8.0 machine, but 8.0's USB2 performance should be much improved.
