Hey all! I just fired up my first Raid 5 setup today.
Did a 3ware card with 3 400 GB drives. I'll have pictures which i took during the install later on my website, i'll let you know once i upload them.
But anyways, I didnt tweak anything yet. What do you think of these results so far?
fileserver:/raiddrive/files# hdparm -Tt /dev/sda
Timing cached reads: 3956 MB in 2.00 seconds = 1978.30 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 268 MB in 3.01 seconds = 88.90 MB/sec
Good / Bad / OK ?
