    Slow Data transferts after edition FSTAB


    Hi Community!

    I just started in Linux with OpenSUSE 12.1 (GNOME) and must say I quite like it.

    My setup (now) looks like this:

    Partition FS Mount point
    /dev/sda1 ntfs /windows/C
    /dev/sda2 swap
    /dev/sda3 ext 4 /
    /dev/sdb1 ntfs /home/username/Datas

    sda is a Intel X-25M 80Gb Postwill with my Windows 7 x64 partition and a fresh install of OpenSUSE 12.1 on sda3

    sdb1 is a Western Digital 500Gb Sata3 drive for my fils formated as NTFS for use in Windows and Linux.

    The initial setup looked like this:

    Partition FS Mount point
    /dev/sda1 ntfs /windows/C
    /dev/sda2 swap
    /dev/sda3 ext 4 /
    /dev/sdb1 ntfs /windows/D

    So you see, I changed the Mount point of the 500Gb HDD to correspond to my needs. To do so, I edited FSTAB.

    Now it looks like this:

    /dev/disk/by-id/ata-INTEL_SSDSA2M080G2GC_CVPO010202RS080BGN-part2 swap swap defaults 0 0
    /dev/disk/by-id/ata-INTEL_SSDSA2M080G2GC_CVPO010202RS080BGN-part3 / ext4 acl,user_xattr 1 1
    /dev/disk/by-id/ata-INTEL_SSDSA2M080G2GC_CVPO010202RS080BGN-part1 /windows/C ntfs-3g users,gid=users,fmask=133,dmask=022,locale=en_US.U TF-8 0 0
    /dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD5000AAKX-001CA0_WD-WCAYU7784858-part1 /home/username/Datas ntfs-3g rw,auto,users,sync,gid=users,fmask=133,dmask=002,l ocale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    sysfs /sys sysfs noauto 0 0
    debugfs /sys/kernel/debug debugfs noauto 0 0
    devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0

    Initially it looked like this (yes I made a backup):

    /dev/disk/by-id/ata-INTEL_SSDSA2M080G2GC_CVPO010202RS080BGN-part2 swap swap defaults 0 0
    /dev/disk/by-id/ata-INTEL_SSDSA2M080G2GC_CVPO010202RS080BGN-part3 / ext4 acl,user_xattr 1 1
    /dev/disk/by-id/ata-INTEL_SSDSA2M080G2GC_CVPO010202RS080BGN-part1 /windows/C ntfs-3g users,gid=users,fmask=133,dmask=022,locale=en_US.U TF-8 0 0
    /dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD5000AAKX-001CA0_WD-WCAYU7784858-part1 /Datas ntfs-3g users,gid=users,fmask=133,dmask=022,locale=en_US.U TF-8 0 0
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    sysfs /sys sysfs noauto 0 0
    debugfs /sys/kernel/debug debugfs noauto 0 0
    devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0

    The problem I encounter now are very slow transfert speeds form and to /dev/sdb1. The average transfert speed is 4Mo/sec !!

    I changed the mountpoint several times until I got the setup I was looking for. I rebooted between each modification.

    Can anyone back me up please.

    Ok, problem solved by myself.

    Appearently Suse do not understand the additional parameters "rw,auto,sync" I added. Since I got rid of them the tranfert rates are back to normal (56Mo/sec for USB3)
