I get the following numbers when running NetBench 7.0.3 on our Dell PowerEdge 2900 server running SBS 2003 R2 - are these good or bad ?:
- Disk mix test (on Raid5 disks): 5.5Mbps total throughput / 0.6ms average response time
- Nic test: 512b:1560Mbps / 1K:2770 / 2K:4443 / 4K:6425 / 8K:8193 / 16K:9470 / 32K:10409 / 64K:10986
(Netbench was run with 1 controller (server) and 1 client (Optiplex with Gb Nic) connected by a Gb switch)
Called Dell but they can not give me any comparison chart or reference to other benchmark results.
Dell PowerEdge 2900 with 2 Quad-core 2.0Ghz Xeon, 4Gb Ram, Nic 1Gb, Perc5i ctrl, 7 Scsi 15k rpm (C: on 2 x 73Gb Raid 1, D: (data) on 4 x 146Gb Raid5, 1 hot spare)
Can give more details if necessary on the Netbench and server parameters.
