TurboSlug and disk speed/Samba speeds
- I posted this a while back off my pre-turbo slug days
$ hdparm -tT /dev/sda
Timing cached reads: 148 MB in 2.04 seconds = 72.55 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 24 MB in 3.06 seconds = 7.84 MB/sec
This is the result post-turboslug:
# hdparm -tT /dev/sda
Timing cached reads: 184 MB in 2.03 seconds = 90.64 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 26 MB in 3.16 seconds = 8.23 MB/sec
Nice solid improvement there.
Back then, I used the 'transfer a file and see what netstat live says'
(preturbo) it copied at 4.8-5.0MB/sec
(post turbo) Doing the same gave me closer to 6MB/sec, cpu (via top)
shows 6-12% idle with Samba 3.0... a little better indeed!
