P2000G3 performance


Anyone got performance testing figures they care to share on a P2000G3 ? We have one configured with 96 midline SAS drives and we're still running some benchmarks but would like to compare against what other people have found even if it is a MDL SAS vs high speed SAS vs lower speed SATA etc.

Any recommendations for Windows test packages that give nice reports/output ?

Lastly, any tips/tricks you could share on setup and performance tuning of this array ?

We have a very simple config - dual controller, 96 drives connected directly @ 8G FC to two hosts running windows SS (2008) - where each host owns 1/2 the storage presented, unclustered. they export the storage via CIFS and NFS.
