Anyone had luck improving the speed of network shares or iSCSI target with the server version of PrimoCache? I have a 3ware 9650se-4lpml RAID5 array with 3 6TB HGST drives that I'm trying to speed up so it can utilize more of my 10GB network.

if you wanna utilize more of your 10GB network, first get a better raid card. And add some more drive.

I'm using a similar setup with PrimoCache on a windows server 2016 OS, running both as a file server and as a iSCSI storage host for virtual machines running on other hosts
So far I've been satisfied with the results on a 10GB network. been able to max out linespeed on everything that lands in the cache

storage behind primocache is an LSI 9271-8i with 6*6TB in raid 5. Second level cache consisting of a fine raid 0 pair of S3710 SSD's found through these forums.

I'm reaching on average a 35% cache hit on combined usage.
cache settings are in the screenshot aswell
