Hey guys, I am trying to find out how I can boost the speed of my ubuntu home server edition. I am currently running ubuntu 10.04 server edition on an old desk top (2007) Compaq Presario SR1810NX.
I have 1 gig of ram in it and I am curious if I get a couple extra sticks, if this will boost my speeds in relation to my streaming.
I want to have pretty much buffer free streaming to my devices in the house when I am watching movies or playing music. Also i would like to increase the download/upload speeds when I am transfering to and from the server.
for instance: I am transfering from my sever to my External HDD mybook usb3.0 which is connected, and the transfer is a total of 41 gigs, the eta is said to be like 13 hrs and is downloading at just about 950 kb/sec and rising little by little and then decreasing little by little. How do I increase this? Also, according to htop, durring this transfer cpu: fluctuates from 3-10%
Cable/dsl: Xfinity "says" I am getting 54mpbs, not sure if it is true or not
HTOP: when I run this program I have a total of 935mb and I am currently using 70
