HP DL380p Gen8 8 + w/12 600GB 6G SAS 15K LFF Dual Port wrong SAS cable

Hello all

 


we have the above hardware here.

HP DL380p Gen8 8-SFF CTO Server

 w/12 600GB 6G SAS 15K LFF Dual Port HDD 7.2TB Bundle with Raid 6.

The read/write performance is  poor.  I tried to 

 

hdparm -tT /dev/mapper/<logical volume>

Timing cached reads: 15718 MB in 2.00 seconds = 7870.31 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 526 MB in 3.00 seconds = 175.31 MB/sec

 then, I checked SAS cabling, but seems SAS cabling is wrong as below

So, I'm planning to change cabling as below

it will affect service, but after cabling it can be mounted as is it?

stored data will not affect?


Any idea ?

Thanks in advance
U

Should work fine! Just be sure to power it off before making cabling changes!
