AFP NAS share very slow on Tagged VLAN

Hi and thank you in advance.

I currently have an all MAC client using a Datto Siris SMB share and we want to move certain materials into an AFP NAS share using their VLAN (Done through VLAN tagging on HP Switches) but everything hangs and freezes up.  When we test it on our general flat network it works fine.

The users in need of the share need their own VLAN for speed.  

I did a lot of googling and didn't find much so thought I would give this a try.

And what do you use as a router?... And how is that connected...
Now you have f.e. 1Gbps connection to your system & 1Gbps to the storage.
If it goes to another VLAN, you need a router between the VLAN's AND you need a 2Gbps connection through the router if you fully used a 1 Gbps link.

A tagged VLAN as such is no cause for degradation but it may cause factors (like a router to pass to another VLAN)  which might not be in the equation before.
Tagged VLAN as such is not a problem, but 9th tagged VLAN may not get filtered in network card/asic and needs switch CPU

HP switches usually need disabling routing accelerator (it is very creative with MACs in other subnets so that at least FreeBSD complains)

Thanks and will take a look at both of these.
