How To Benchmark A Server

Last Modified: 2015-12-16
How do you pros do it benchmark your servers?
I got raid 6 setup and going with cache and bbu. I'm starting to copy data into the new raid drive and Windows is indicating 119MB/s at best.
Granted the source disk is a sing disk on AHCI but its 6Gb/s too. Shouldn't I be seeing much faster speeds?
New raid, new dual CPU board, DDR4 Etc.
4 hours to move a 300GB OwnCloud Folder.
This cannot be right!
I have both processors installed but I only have 32GB of DDR4 and another 14 slots to fill but I need to slow down on the purchasing :)
