Our 6tb nas at work is having issues, the os, which is a linux based os on the nas, reports that everything is ok, but we are getting read write errors and/or slow transfer speeds.

Is there a program that we can run from one of our servers or desktops to test a nas out?

thanks

If you can somehow get into the underlying os, you could run an fsck to check for file system errors. If the OS is reporting just from SMART drive data then it could be easily be wrong. SMART is not all that accurate and often misses things.

I don't know if some Acronis tool might be able to run a remote scan or something.

no nothing, sorry geffy for some reason i didn't see your post until now.

its a customised linux os, the smart is crap, it has a crap load of scanning programs within the raid section, but they are crap as well, because i know for a fact one of the drives is faulty.

We updated the software and it has not crashed up for 3 days, but i'm still dubious as my pc was getting read/write errors from the machine.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
