A bit of research directed me here and to an Experts-Exchange article http: I had Debian on one of the raid volumes to boot from so it should recognize the drives fine if the card is functioning. If it is 64k, which is a best practice for SQL, I would want something larger than for the starting offset. The controller has a cache board and a battery pack. However data rate readings can lie! Good call, sorry for not including that in the first place.

Seeing as the card itself isn’t recognized to install drivers I don’t think so. If it is 64k, which is a best practice for SQL, I would want something larger than for the starting offset. The array stripe size is set to 64k. Good call, sorry w200i not including windowz in the first place.
They give me a single exe file. Surface scan delay is 15 sec. However, I have no idea if that matches your actual configuration, so I can’t really comment on whether the observations are relevant in your case. That’s all I got.
Logs on RAID5 is not a recommended practice, logs and data on the same arry is not recommended and finally; OS and logs and data on the same array is not recommended. They do not believe the performance issues are the fault of the application itself. I’m not sure what they may be.
AFAIK is the slowest possible disk configuration. I wish I didn’t want to game.

Write Random Raid5 3 HD: You should not be having a “pseudo-degraded” Raid5 as a database backing store. Winows should probably post the configuration raid levels, where it stores datafiles and where it stores logfiles.
Do I need drivers? No other combination seems to work. I had Debian on one of the raid volumes to boot from so it should recognize the drives fine if the card is functioning. I’ll check out the P windws the P, thanks. Below is a benchmark we did with similar hardware, and a few differences noted.

I have similar configurations using 3Ware cards producing well over iostats so I was trying to figure out what the??? The upgraded cards seem to be the e020i.
Rebuild and expand priority are set to medium. It seems like it wants a folder with the driver files inside. Add in a low end controller and things will not get better.
Finally the above command made the array perform closer to expectation. The problem is that I have no clue how to initialize the thing on a desktop motherboard. I can’t find anything online to help. This will confirm your NTFS allocation unit size. SteveBurkett 1, 4 6.
Smart Array E200i Controller Drivers
Never mind that last comment, I see Chris S above said swapping out the controller would probably only make a small improvement. We have a client who is complaining about performance of an application wijdows utilizes an MS SQL database. Does the Smart Array Ei have a backup battery write cache installed?
