FC-Test - continued
Next, File Copy Test combines read and write tasks in some, er, copy tests.
The Windows test pattern again proves challenging for our X25-E array, which would have otherwise swept FC-Test's copy tests. Still, four X25-Es are consistently faster than just one, and occasionally by significant margins. We find the best performance scaling with the ISO test pattern, which is made up of only a few very large files and runs a little better than 2.7 times faster on our RAID config.
The results of FC-Test's partition copy tests mirror those of the straight copy tests. Our X25-E RAID config is certainly dominant, but it can't shut out the ANS-9010 RAM disk.
