HP Proliant DL 385 low transfer rate

Hello, i've a Proliant DL 385 with Windows 2003 Enterprise. I installed the latest smartcd and made a speed check for data transfer rate with HD Tune. This tool reportet me a horrible rate (average 30MB/s). So this big and loud server has a Ultra 320 Controller with original HP Hard Drives (Ultra320 and 10k), Raid 5, and that cannot be.

Is this normal or is something wrong configured?

Hi, we have some of these servers, no problem yet, but nevew checked speed via smartstart.
Check your bios/firmware/drivers status, probably run some windows based utils like HDTune 4x ?

Remember that raid5 has write penalty..
