    more serious HDD tester: post IOmeter results

    It will take a few minutes to set this benchmark up but IOmeter is a much better way to test a hard drive performance than Hdtach etc... Post also what setup you have

    Here is a quick guide how to set it up:

    1. Download IOmeter
    http://www.iometer.org/doc/downloads.html

    2. You can try opening iometer.icf file (see attachement) or set it up manually
    Set target and disk size (8GB)


    3. Create a new test


    Access specification will look like this:


    4. Last parameters


    Then simply click start tests (green flag). Run time will be 5min*4=20minutes

    It will save results in CSV file. Next you want to open the file in Excel and format to something like this (raptor 150GB raid0):





    Here is another result from Gigabyte iRAM (1GB though):

    That link doesn't work kiwi.

    Update it with something like this: http://sourceforge.net/projects/iometer/

    I ran a test on my laptop, will post on it in a few minutes.

    BGVirtual:

    That's really interesting. For small queue depth raid 5 is not good but for higher depth it gets better. Probably with more disks and higher depth it will be even better. That's why raid 5 is typically for servers and server applications

    3x320gb Hitachi Deskstars in RAID 0.
    As quoted by LowRun......"So, we are one week past AMD's worst case scenario for BD's availability but they don't feel like communicating about the delay, I suppose AMD must be removed from the reliable sources list for AMD's products launch dates"

    Excepting the OP's I-RAM tests (which I can't really explain unless the 1GB size makes any difference), the ACARD ANS9010 in RAID-0 with itself on a PERC 6/i appear to pretty well dominate at this test:

    Ram drive is 14GB. Soon to be 26GB when I go to 32GB system RAM next week.

    Everything is instantaneous.
