Transaction rate results really start to space out with four-drive RAID 0 arrays. First, we see that HighPoint's RocketRAID 133 is slower in every access pattern and at every load level. We're working with a four-drive array here, and the IOMeter tests are clearly saturating the RocketRAID 133's two IDE channels. In this case, two channels of ATA/133 aren't enough to keep up with a four-drive RAID 0 array.
Either E-mail or posting links would be fine. A screen shot of each tab would be perfect. Since others might want to try the test also, maybe posting links would be best. I've used IOMeter for the 64K streaming tests and I have plenty of disk space on all drives involved. Afterward I just delete the test file.Dissonance wrote:I can pull together some screen shots and email them to you if you'd like, Mr. Bill. Otherwise I can try to rig up my server to host them and just post links here. I'm assuming that a screen shot of each configuration tab for IOMeter should suffice?
Also, you might not want to run the tests on a drive that you're currently using, since running the test involves 'preparing' the drives, which pretty much means filling them to capacity.
