    LAN Speed Test Version 4.0 Beta 1 - Mac OS X Edition

    Hi Pete

    I have some concerns regarding the read speeds. When I look at the download speed on my Mac it is showing very little throughput. I'm thinking the app isn't even downloading the data but rather reading from the disk cache. Here are a couple sample outputs for your viewing pleasure:

    Date: 2016-12-07 21:28:10

    Let me know what I can do to help troubleshoot.

    Hi Counsil,

    Correct - Beta 1 does not have the capability on the Mac to clear local drive or USB drive cache - Only network drives or shared drives across the network. Windows Beta works fine. This issue is listed under 'These features are still coming in the next beta builds...' I'm still working on a solution to clear the cache when testing to local drives. Apple makes things very difficult when you try to do something out of the norm. I have it working on LAN Speed Test (Lite), but then it affects testing to some NAS's too as reading from those NAS's become extremely slow. I'll get it worked out, but it will most likely be in beta 3. Beta 2 should be ready by next week with Network Scanning and logging supported Beta 3 will include support for testing to LST Server. We are getting close finally!

    Thanks for testing and your input!
    -Pete

    /Volumes/backups-3 in the tests above is not a local drive. Its a network share... to a shared folder named "Backups" on a Synology DS1812+ NAS to be more specific.

    Ahh, sorry about that. I was thinking that it was a USB drive. What happens if you increase your packet size? Say to 5 or 10 MB?
