I have a Dell R710 with dual quad core processors and 32 gig of ram that I am trying to run MS SQL server on 2003R2 OS.

When I run a read benchmark test it runs at almost 2,000 MB/s for about 10 seconds and them drops off to under 100 MB/s for all bu about 15 seconds of the test, then it returns to over 2,000 MB/sec.
I have spent several days with Dell tech support but have not been able to find the answer. They say it works and none of the diagnostics show a problem so there is nothing they can due. The server is useless to us as it is.

Anyone have any ideas what the problem might be?
