Slow hard drive - hdparm -t yields 2.41Mb/s
I have an exceedingly slow hard drive on a CentOS
(uname -r: 2.6.18-194.8.1.el5) box and wonder what I can do to improve io speeds.
Device is 1TB Western Digital:
hdparm -Tt /dev/hdb2:
Timing cached reads: 26532 MB in 2.00 seconds = 13294.20 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 8 MB in 3.50 seconds = 2.29 MB/sec
Thanks in advance
