Synology DiskStation DS1515+ NAS: Testing Operation

There are two aspects concerning the operation of the Synology DS1515+ we need to examine next and that concerns the cooling performance and power consumption of the system.

Cooling:

The Synology DS1515+ is cooled by dual 80mm x 80mm fans that are designed to run in two modes, quiet and cool. For the tests I kept the fans on quiet mode as a normal user would and set up the Intel NAS Performance Toolkit to run while the volume was in RAID 5. When the tests were nearing completion, I checked the temperatures of the hard disks under the Storage Manager via the S.M.A.R.T. settings. Each one is shown in the graph below along with the ambient temperature of the testing room.

As you can see from the temps, the cooling of the dual fans are very efficient and keep the Synology DS1515+ at nice working temps. Also to note, the noise level of the fans is not very noticeable. During the test the NAS was sitting next to my desk and I never heard the fans like I do on my servers.
