hard drives & raid - benchmark and compare!

Recommended Posts

Here's the same drives as before on 32k Strip and 8k clusters.

 

Is this a good result from these drives? Or should I be looking to optimise further?

 

Again sorry for the slow loading images.

Heres some tests from a newly installed system. Win XP SP2, nF4 Ultra-D mobo, 2x Hitachi Deskstar 80 GB SATA 2 RAID. Stripe size "optimum"

 

anyone got any tips on how/if I can improve these figures?

I just benchmarked my 2x36 Raptors and the speed is slower than normal. My stripe and cluster sizes are all defaults. My RAID rivers is 5.10.2600.518.

 

Need help.

The stripe width should be four times the cluster size for best overall performance.

 

You never want the cluster size and stripe width to be the same.

That or 16x4 or 32x8. I think a good way to test them is use a different drive with windows and test the raid array from there that way you don't have reinstall windows every time you want to try a different stripe and cluster size.
