Although I have found whenever upgrading firmwares, all the cameras on Surveillance Station become disabled.

I had same problem when upgrading to 1955. I changed the account type that Surveillance uses on the camera in the camera's user administration (Foscam compatible) from 'visitor' to 'administrator'. Since then no problem anymore! :D

Help requested for benchmarks

I have a Synology DS410J upgraded to DSM 1955. I am more than willing to post my benchmarks, but have a question (not having done it before).

It looks like LANSpeed test puts everything in memory, so I just need to run LANSpeed test...

but what about Crystal Disk Mark. All I have is a laptop with a 2.5 SSD. I don't know if I can push enough Mbs to the DS410J over gigabit ethernet...

I have a 210j in RAID1. I upgraded to DSM 1955, moving from a stable 3.0 from last year. All worked fine the first day. The only additional package I installed was squeezecenter 7.6. I power down at night and back up in the morning. After power up the next day, my Volume 1 was crashed, though all SMART extended tests indicated both disks are normal; no bad drives at all.

I know that many had an issue with volume crashes when upgrading to 3.1 and so I tried downgrading back to DSM 3.0, but still had the same volume crashed indicator after that install too, so I've gone back to 1955. I can read from the disks fine. I've previously logged a ticket with Synology but have not heard back. If anyone has had success in addressing this issue other than a complete wipe of the disk please post.

Updated to 1955 today on my 211j.

Everything seems to work fine.

Peak upload speeds (large files) seem to have gone up a bit...

Old: 39 Mb/sec write, about the same for read
New: 45-50 Mb/sec write, 45 Mb/read.

Although, I'm not sure it's that much faster in reality, as the speed fluctuates throughout the file-write operating, ranging from about 22 Mb/sec to those 45-50 Mb/sec.

Hello newcomer here, please forgive me if this is not the place to ask this question. I am trying to find the latest version of DSM for my 1511 and for some reason the download section on the main site gives me an error and a "back" option. Can anyone point me to where I can download this DSM 1955?

Upgraded to 1955 and am having huge problems with iSCSI targets un-mounting. Had Superduper scheduled and making smart updates nightly for the past year and a half flawlessly. After U/G it starts, then stops and has lost the mount. Using globalSAN to initiate. Upgrading to globalSAN5, latest version of SD and even OSX from Snow Leopard to Lion has made no difference. This is a total balls-up…

To my surprise, my LANSpeed test revealed a 21% write speed, and a 2.5% read speed improvement! The write speed improvement is significant and puts this little NAS in another category. Great work Synology.

I have the same problem as Dreggie with a ds2411+. Explanded volume after adding 4x Tb disks (9-12), all seemed to go fine - no error messages - then I saw 23TB available out of 17 Tb in windows file explorer. CPU at 100%, memory was 40% now getting close to 100% 4 days later.., 10 instances of resize2fs running. I can still access data but storage manager will not show volume information and as memory usage has increased seems to be struggling to start - same with system Info.
Funny thing is I ran storage manager expansion under v3 (latest version prior to V4) and all was fine...looks like bug in V 4...

Have submitted ticket...awaiting results...

Update...

Synology Tech support have been helpful via email (good) and kernal dump is simple (if you have access to the web interface of the unit) but DS2411 is still blocked up with resize2fs processes and its been running for 5 days...tech support recommmended leaving it to run for 5 days after which they suggested a power reboot (software reboot did not work)and immediately performance improved but CPU usage hit 100% within a few minutes - memory usage started at 40% then crept up to 100% over several days with performance degrading -
I was able to restart copying files to backups after reboot (about 4 days earlier I coud not connect due to timeouts and filecopy kept on giving an invalid path message) but AGAIN over several days, I lost connection, unable to login again so did another power on/off today.
Same issues - CPU 100% within a few minutes (Resizefs2 processes seem to be spawned continuously - after a few minutes each instance was using about 0.5% of CPU so I'm guessing there are many more than the 10 I can see on the CPU usage chart running concurrently) - it would be helpful to be able to kill the processes/threads and see everything that is running as per CTL ALT DEL on windows
I am still copying data off - another couple of days to go and there seems to be no other issue (disks all NORMAL and after reboot I can connect to the unit and stream with no problems) - apart from the size of volume is still wrong and VOLUME MANAGER will not start
Info shows -ve values in both free space and used at around ...-97xxxxxxxxxxx
Tech support have escalated to engineers to have access to the system but I am finishing the backup before letting them play around...

This us very disappointing overall - I ran 2 file expansions before upgrading to V4 DSM and all went fine (if a little long winded) - this time it all went to [Please control your language]...I am constantly astonished by the lack of quality testing nowadays with organisations who are offloading the testing to end users and interrupting our work without taking accountability for producing a reasonable product for the thick end of $2K. You would hope that someone with some intelligence would fix the QA process or at least offer some recompense to endusers doing their testing and fault finding for them....

Once i have the data off I will give Synology a chance to fix the issue but will be looking for a new product that has some level of quality and will not be purchasing anything from them again...Ill probably end up building something myself...
Sad thing is they are probably better than most other suppliers - someone really needs to take this market apart and produce solid products and software and get all these sloppy organisations to shape up or go under...

1. This is the DSM 3.2 forum section, not DSM 4.

2. Let the Synology engineers help you figuring out the problem you have.

3. Do not moarn about Synology if they want to help you after all.

4. If you think it is 'so easy' to get ALL bugfree, I have this for you:
There is no thing like 100% bugfree, because of all possible differences.
Other brands and other electronic devices do have the same trouble.

Just be gentle and only give valuable information.

Maybe the fact that you're a student Willhem means you have not been exposed to professional software development and testing
I have been doing it for around 3 decades.....some software is actually 100per cent bug free and in decidedly more complicated environments than NAS...think about command and control systems, Defence, banking etc...

Regardless of the above a series of regression tests is a Pre requisite for any software release. .. Especially a full revision....my point is was one done? And what were the results? Where is the traceability matrix?

I have been positive about customer support which has been good ( there I stated it again). I am not happy about the quality of the product and I am sure customer support and second and third line response are not either... Fix the issues before the product is released...then I wouldn't be spending time trying to work out your product which to be clear has NOT damaged my data as yet (and i have backups) but other posters HAVE had issues...someone in Synology is accountable for this and needs to know the issues ad fix them...if you give me the name of the CEO or the head of a customer service or quality I would be happy to discuss this with them personally....

Aplgs about the mild expletive and replace with "to pot"

and please move my posts to the relevant forum - this was one of several I found with similar issues...some structuring of this site would be helpful and avoid redundant conversations. Also fyi the search function seems to time out about 30 per cent of the time which may be an issue on the infrastructure side of the site as I can't replicate it with other

Also a private reply feature would be helpful.

Well, as retired IT specialist I have said what i've said.
If you know better, be my guest, but do not discuss it here.
Please.

The point however is that this is only a USERFORUM FOR USERS.
Users can help others, only sometimes a Synology person pops in.
To contact Synology for help or any assistance there are tickets.

I hope your problems are solved soon.
