benchmark


I have a hardware RAID device and I'm convinced it's a bit slow. Reads seem fine (system is heavily cached) but I suspect writes are slow.


Does anybody have some readily available benchmarking methods for write speed ? I seem to recall using dd at some point. I've tried hdparm but only for reads

Well, I think you can just run:

Code:
dd count=1000000 if=/dev/zero of=file
or something like that, and at the end it will state the throughput.
