SCSI's speed

Hi all,
I have 2 servers. They are have SCSI connections between each other. I checked network speed via lanadmin. But how can I determine speed of scsi connection? I found via ioscan H/W path:
0/2/1/0 ext_bus SCSI Ultra320 A6961-60111
0/2/1/1 ext_bus SCSI Ultra320 A6961-60111

Best regards,

Re: SCSI's speed

Hi Rustam,

Here is the answer for your question.

According to your ioscan output it appears that your system is installed with Scsi Ultra320 card and basically Ultra320 SCSI is the seventh generation of SCSI I/O technology. Its dominant feature is its increased speed of 320 MBytes per second.

Hope This address your question!!
