You have set up too few buffers for your partitions. Type the command addbuffer in a cli/shell to know how much buffers you have for all your partitions. Where have you find this value of 64 for the buffers of each partition ?
I have searched on obligement.free.fr by typing 'installation morphos' and here are the results with differents versions of morphos. At the beginnings of morphos 1.4.x with scsciconfig the buffers setup was 600 for each partition. With morphos 2.0 this value was lowered to 300 for each partition. On the article morphos 2.6/2.7 as 2.x/3.x the value is the same, 300. On most recent articles about morphos 3.0/3.9 and 3.10/3.12 the value indicated is lowered to 128 but on grabbed pictures the value is steel 300.
By tries increase the buffers value for each partition to 128 or 300 and verify how better the datas throughput are. This will take a few more memory but if the transferts are better it is not a problem.
Not I have set this up but MOS has set this up. I said "create a new partition" and MOS set all the values. I must expect that MOS knows right what the correct values are becuase it does all the detection and preparation, how can a user know this and if they are different then MOS has to inform the user about the right settings.
The value for the buffer is written in HDConfig if you click on the partition.
With addbuffers it shows that every partition has 128 buffers. Only the IceFS partitions say "unknown DOS packet request type".
I Installed MorphOS with 3.10. I added all buffers to 300 now. With a large file I get almost 4MB/s. Still very low. So there must be nother reason.
