[Linux] File Manager
#1
I do not use File Manger that often, but today I wanted to move a Video file from one directory to another on the same xbmc main server with mdadm/LVM2 raid 5 installed. I normally get around 90-110 MBps writes, but using the file manager to move a file, the file manager is showing 2 Mbps transfer and it is very (painfully) slow on a 4 GB video file.

Anything I can do to speed up copy/move operations? It would be nice if to do a move it would just issue a linux mv command, but I guess to be compatible across all platforms something else is done.

hi, could you use mc to verify the higher transfer rate firstly.

dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/raid/test/4GB bs=1M count=4000
4000+0 records in
4000+0 records out
4194304000 bytes (4.2 GB) copied, 41.5289 s, 101 MB/s

This is how I test for read/write performance. I try not use gui stuff on my installations, read speed is much faster.

some things that come to my mind:
1. You could try booting the xbmc livecd and see what the filemanager throughput is there... but idk if you would run into permission problems (probably).

2. exit to the lubuntu part of xbmc and see what the filemanager throughput is there.
