We are in the process of installing a Dell Equallogic SAN Storage solution. We have virtualised our servers and put them on the hosts sitting above the Dell EQL.
Having ran SQLIO to test 8, 16, 32, 64 and 256Kb of data we have discovered the following odd behaviour:
Reads are happening at 110MBps whilst Writes are 45MBps. We are using 1GBps ethernet (so 110 is expected bandwidth limit).
Has anyone seen and/or does anyone have an explanation for this behaviour?
