That’s pretty slow for modern equpment. I usually see 60+MB on single
or software-mirrored scsi and 40-60MB on IDE (don’t have
any raided IDE…). Be sure you have good 80-wire cables and
you see something like:
hda: 195371568 sectors (100030 MB) w/2048KiB Cache, CHS=12161/255/63,
That may not be the real problem, but it is something you
should be able to improve.
Oh definitely. I knew those were horrible numbers. I’m not the one
having performance issues, Jon is.
RT is “fast enough” for me and my users on even that dog slow Athlon
That’s why I was posting was to give Jon something to compare to as I
have never seen any published performance numbers anywhere. Perhaps
they’re in the WiKi but WiKi-hunting drives me batty… would much
prefer a real manual to a wiki any day… call me old-fashioned.
