Question Measuring NAS maximum transfer rate from within the NAS itself, possible?

Hi guys,

You know how HD tune nicely measures the transfer rate of disks connected locally to the PC and shows you a graph of it. Is there a way to do the same thing for a NAS storage volume? I'm using synology D1618+ with DSM OS. I searched, but couldn't find a way. If I measure the share drives using AJA system test inside of my PC's, I get bottle-nicked by the 1Gbps network link. My NAS volume consists of 5 8TB WD WD80EFAX drives in RAID 5. So it should deliver speeds more than 1Gbps.
