Poor Drive Performance

ML370 512MB Smart Array 431 2x9GB RAID1 4x18 RAID5 SCSI-3 10,000 Hot Plug. Recently installed.

Copying folder of 600+ Files 30 MB from Wks to Server takes 15 seconds, copying same folder from Server to Wks takes 2 minutes 20 seconds. All Copying initiated from the Workstation.

Have tweaked NIC & Switch settings from Autosense to 100MB ful duplex, half duplex, etc. and slowdown continues.

I now think the array might be at fault, but there are no error messages anywhere. Any pointers??

Re: Poor Drive Performance

If you are still seeing this, why not try monitoring the processess monitor to see what process is consuming resoureces when you start a copy -- if you need to feel free to email support@compaq.com or call 1-800-0k-compaq
