I have a SANLink2 10G SFP+ connecting my MacPro to a Synology DS3615xs. Is the current driver (1.8.2) compatible with macOS 10.14? If not, whenn can an update be made available?

Hi Wendy. That document references a driver version SR3.0.6 which does not appear to be downloadable for the SANLink2 10G SFP+ or Base-T models. The latest version of the driver for the non-FC SANLink2 devices is 1.8.2 and the notes reference compatibility for 10.13.

Can you please clarify and update your site to point to new drivers or mention support for 10.14 with the existing drivers so that it is clear? Thank you.

I just threw caution to the wind last night and upgraded to Mojave.

The good news is that everything seems to work as before. My shares and the iSCSI targets are all mounted via the SANLink network adapter.

But that's not the end of the good news: Transfer rates have improved vastly! As many previous reports in this forum testify, users have reported quite low transfer rates. I saw the same here, never exceeding 150-160 mb/s to and from my Synology ds3615xs. However, I just noted that tx rates are up to 680MB/s via SMB and 450MB/s via iSCSI...

That puts the blame of the performance issues on to High Sierra as it seems...
