Hey everyone. I'm using a RT3WB080 with 8 segate 7200rpm 2TB drives in a raid 5 array. (actually 7 drives active, one is set for a real time hotsettin spare). I am using this as storage for music production. Originally I was getting almost 1.6 Gb/s read speeds with 300MB.s+ write speeds. i had a failure of the BBU and after replacing it I thought I reproduced all of my settings but now I am seeing speeds that are a fraction of that. i.e read: 600Mb/s, write 150Mb/s. Does anyone know the best configuration in the raid settings to try to get my read.write speeds back to normal. i.e. Write thru/write back with BBU, direct I/O/Cached I/O, etc.
i have tried various settings but can't seem to hit on the settings I had before. this is quite important for me so any help that could be provide would be greatly appreciated. If someone could help me find the optimal settings I think a PayPal donation would not be out of the question.
if anyone could help, please do, it is imperative that I get these speeds up for my protools setup.
thanks in advance,
