The issue here is that AFP is deprecated and abandoned by Apple.
Fair point, but a 10G switch is a first step in generally updating the home network.
As I understand, it is a very basic setting and the drives are just shared individually. It is possible to set up RAID 0, RAID 1 or even RAID 10 with DiskUtility for performance and/or security; parity arrays would require OMV (or alternatives). Any drive array, of course, implies formatting the drives anew and restoring.
Ah, thank you for the clarifications.
I mistook your initial comment ("Moving up, SMB itself is likely to become another bottleneck. It's single threaded, and not very good at scaling up.") to mean I should use AFP instead of SMB. After your comment that AFP was dropped by Apple, I switched over to SMB. Now my network speeds are closer to the 1G limits (as above). Thank you very much for that!
Could you clarify what you meant by SMB is likely to become another bottleneck? Is that likely to limit the benefits of upgrading to a 10GBase-T card? Or something else, perhaps more advanced than my simple setup?
