Performance of RAID configuration
Posted on 2006-05-17
Brand-new server with dual Intel Xeon HT processors, 2GB of RAM, configure with Raid on Mother Board (ROMB) on Ultra320 SCSI channel with 128 iTBBU cache memory hook to hot-plug SCSI cage with four (4) Ultra320 Cheetah ST373207LC disks. The RAID configuration is RAID5: 1 array with 4 stripes, 64K stripe size. The OS is Windows 2003 Standard SP1, all drivers are up to date.
Now when we copy a folder of 6GB to another folder on the same server it takes 26 minutes to complete.
Is this normal?? This is in my opinion way to slow considering the configuration.
Can someone explain to me why it is that slow (if the amount of time is normal)???
