1 thought on “Synology Releases DSM 5.1-5004 Update 2”

  1. I am a big fan of Synology’s products and have been successfully using several models since 2011

    However I am very concerned about performance issues with the new DSM 5.1.
    For unknown reasons, the update to 5.1 dramatically slows down the file transfers and user access to the NAS. Backups that used to be able to run in parallel (USB and Network) are now sequential and at a slower transfer rate and do not complete in time before the next work day. These then seem to impact network port congestion and user login and experience – only solution is a reboot.

    For those still on DSM 4.3 or perhaps DSM 5.0 you may want to pause on the DSM 5.1 update until the slowdown issue is resolved.

    Frustrating indeed!
