Hi, when rendering a 4000 frame animation,

6 x servers are taking average 3:40/frame pulling all files from Synology NAS over gigabit network.

Local PC is taking 2:00 or less pulling all files from internal HDD.

Is that differnece just the network speed?  Would 10gig network sort that out?

Is the synology NAS the bottleneck? Not able to dish out files to 6 computers simultaneously?  Would a dedicated workstation/server do a better job on current gigabit network?

Thoughts?

[Max] I need help! / heavy network usage
« on: 2018-02-22, 11:19:33 »
I'm having issues with a pair of scenes, a living room and a bedroom that are incredibly slow to work on..  The culprit appears to be heavy network usage (windows 10 says a pretty constant 50mb down once the scene is open)
All textures and proxies are coming from a shared NAS.
THis is same in in Max 2014 upwards it seems..
I cant see what the scene is doing, that it needs to constantly bother the network like this.. I'd expect it at render time and saving etc, but not just sitting there..
Any thoughts or suggestions welcome..
