I can't find a way to pause or disable sync of a new array, so I cannot do any speed testing to help configure and optimize my new drive before I put data on it.
I'm seeing 180MB/s for RAID6 as my default write speed, and it drops to about 100MB/s if I enable OSX encryption (1MB stripe, 512 sector, write through). I see around 400MB/s write for my gen1 Pegasus with encryption on (same RAID 6). I am hoping for 600+ with the Pegasus3 R6 with encryption on, but that seems a vast ways off with my current 100MB/s.
A bit concerned, as LaCie 6Big has a flaw that causes massive drop in write speed with encryption on, and I'm wondering if the Pegasus 3rd gen is also falling victim to a similar issue (the gen 1 runs circles around both, but may simply be the sync process).
