    Hi azadbal,

    I don't have any hard numbers on that but I cannot imagine that using a NAS for the cache is even close to realistic. Since RC makes extensive use of it, I could imagine that there is a significant loss in speed. Even switching from HDD to SSD can make a noticable difference (haven't measured it though).Since a NAS has magnitudes of a slower transfer rate, you can imagine what would happen.

    Why don't you just try it out and let us know? If you use a small image set and write down the processing times for each step, it should be quite easy to find it out...
