    What are peoples experience with the speed of upload? I’m slightly disappointed, but a course could be that it seems like Crashplan don’t have any datacenters in Europe. I’m located in Denmark and as far as I can see, my data it sent to a datacenter in USA.

    Compression is not really relevant for my data as most of the data is compressed RAW files (photos) and movie files.

    Current upload speed is 3.4Mbps and I rarely see it go higher than that. I have a 60/60Mbit connection and I believe I have allowed the Crashplan app all the ressources it wants, so it should be able to transfer much faster.

    From my experience (Portugal, fiber optic connection with 10 Mbps upload) what you’re getting is a pretty good transfer rate.

    In the end, I just “set it and forget it”. It took a month or two to make the initial backup (~1.5Tb), but now, with incremental backups of a few Gb every now and then.

    One thing though – don’t max out your RAM max heap value, in case you’re using a NAS. That will definitely start to be a performance bottleneck, especially with large data sets. I’ve set mine to around 80% the installed RAM.

    I added 2GB RAM to my DS1010+ so it now have 3GB and I have configured the heap to 2GB. I configured Crashplan to use up to 95% of the CPU and no limit on bandwidth. I haven’t touched the message buffer size or the QoS

    I bought a month subscription to test and have 24 days left. It has so far uploaded around 325GB data, but I did “fool around” with settings, backup sets and such from the start so it’s not completely accurate. Aside from the speed, which I’m a bit disappointed in, it seems to run without issue.

    Thanks for that link, I’ve changed the data dedup. setting for WAN to 1 and it certainly seems to have speeded up the upload. It now runs at 12-16Mbps instead of around 3Mbps. It’s only been running for a few minutes so far. Will be interesting to see if it continues at that speed.
