    We have an 8TB RAID 5 that we work to, and it runs WIndows server, so we connect to it via SMB over an ethernet network. Our Ethernet goes into a Gigabit switch from our macs. Why are we only getting about 50/60MB/s speeds read and write? If it’s gigabit, shouldnt we almost be reaching at least 100?
