I am having some serious IO problems on a ML350 with 2003 running on it.
Have a Raid Controller in it (64 mb cache). 5 drives (2 mirrored, 3 Raid 5)
Dual Xeon 3.06
We have sql server 2000 running on it, and the performance on it is terrible.
We ran a SQL server IO test on it, and my 1.6ghz laptop and the laptop beat by a factor of 5 in read/writes per second.
I had a HP employee in today, and he replaced everything but the system board and drives. No changes.
After all this he decided that the server is running fine. I will not accept that.
What other IO tests can i run on this? I want a generic IO test, to see what the problem is.
BTW, we also booted from an XP boot Disk, and the performance was the same on the server, so the OS can be ruled out.
