So, I had this thought that it would be cool to setup a NAS box, with maybe zfs raid10 (2 mirror vdevs in a pool that is), or maybe btrfs + raid10.
I have a Linksys wrt1200ac router. With OpenWRT, I thought, could maybe setup ethernet bonding, connecting 2 of the ports on the built in switch to 2 ports on the NAS box, both sides set to do ethernet bonding.
That would leave 2 ethernet ports that could go to 2 devices, plus of course the wifi for other devices. My thinking being that if there are multiple users on the network moving bits to/from the NAS, it would go a bit faster using 2x ethernet ports bonded.
But, then I got to thinking, I have no idea if the processor on the wrt1200ac is really fast enough to effectively saturate multiple gigabit ethernet ports + wifi. Anyone ever tried this? Is the even worthwhile, or is there essentially zero benefit from doing 2x bonded ether with that router?
