Re: aio 1200 performance

The best way to check the disk queue is to run Windows perfmon.

This article is pretty detailed:

Generally if your disk queue averages at over three, you're going to be experiencing issues.

As far as logs go, again perfmon is the place to look, except you'd setup a long term counter instead of just a short term trace.

At the end of the day, you've got low speed SATA disks sharing over iSCSI of SMB (depending on configuration). If you're being asked to look at performance, it's undoubtedly because you're exceeding the abilities of the storage hardware.
