Methodology

Having offhanded the software rundown to my previous self, I decided I couldn’t leave the DS110 J completely untested, so I opted for a file transfer benchmark. Fortunately Intel offer a nice standardised test for NAS devices, known as the NAS Performance Toolkit. 808.dk also have their own NAS test suite, offering a different perspective.

No file transfer benchmarking could be complete without a real world transfer test as well, so I performed one of those too.
