I am not sure idf this falls under hardware or software but....
I have just deployed a Dell 745N NAS w/ SATA Raid 5
I migrated from a Dell Power Edge 6450 w/ SCSI Raid (PERC3)
My issue is with Large Excel files. Anything over 2 MB takes 5 minutes to load. We have spreadsheets that are 25MB and more. So you can see my issue.
We did not have this isssue on the SCSI Drives.
I am told by Dell that it is the SATA Raid Controller that is my problem it can not handle the cache requirements.
I have to call BS and ask someone that knows what they are talking about.
SCSI and SATA use caching differently. SATA actually uses the cache on the drives to increase read/write performance. Yes? No?
Has anyone experienced this before? Or Any suggestions on where to find a real solution?
