Poor performance on HP DL380 G3

We measure with the HPReadData.exe diskperformance on various DL380g3 en DL380g4 Windows2000 sp2 and sp4 servers.
The G3 measure an throughput of about 6-7mb/s
On the G3 we use the 6.40 driverset. Read/Write controller settings 100/0

The G4 40mb/s
The G4 uses 7.10driverset

Are we measurring the disk performace correctly?
What could be te cause for this slow diskperformance?

Re: Poor performance on HP DL380 G3

Hi Randy,
U have to know that the SCSI backplane of DL380G3 are running ULTRA 3 SCSI instead of Ultra 320.

On the other hand, DL380G4 are supporting end-to-end Ultra 320 bandwidth including the backplane.

That's the cause of the poor performance of G3 server.
