Old Computer + XServe

Hey Guys,

I have my 2008 XServe and I am in desperate need of a solution.

Multiple Switches managed and not managed i also have a server with 24 bays.
12 of which are filled with 500GBx7200RPM drives

No matter os i try i am getting crappy transfer speed to my Xserve about 8mbps

I've used freenas and open filer both with no success i am also setting them up in a RAID 5 array just to have a safety.

I am looking to use the storage server to store movies and stream them over my home network through the XServe.

Is anyone able to offer any advice as to why i am getting such crappy transfer speeds via gigabit links

Xserve has 2 gigabit nics
storage server has 4
