    Just wanting to jump in to say big thanks to Doc-of-FC :thumbup:

    I seemed to be experiencing a similar issue with regards to transfer speeds between XCP-ng / Xen Orchestra and FreeNAS with NFS in my homelab.
    Slow transfer speed was resolved by editing the respective shared NFS dataset under "Storage" --> "Pools" and setting sync to disabled (I used the GUI in FreeNAS 11.2~""Stable"")

    Nightly backups dropped from 2 hours to 17 minutes for ~36GB.

    (JBOD 3.5" SATA HDD's :tongue: with no raid/redundancy & no SSD's :upset: as homelab is non-critical)
    This is the same approximate speed I get if I use SMB/CIFS (fstab mount + 'local' backup) iirc.

    I know it's a world of difference between enterprise and homelab, but I hope this helps in some capacity :)
