) are your DAC1164's in 64bit slots or 32bit ones? cause if they're in 32bit
) slots then you're absolutely maxing out your PCI bus on block reads (eg
) 37MB/s), and the card probably could go even faster.
They're all in 32bit slots -- none of those boxes (Dell 4300's) had
64bit slots. IIRC the 4400 has but I've switched to buying 2450's
which don't ;(
) nice numbers anyway. and why not set them for write-back since you have
) the battery back-up?
Have been enabling write-back on most of the more recently installed
boxes. Don't particularly care about write performance on boxes such
as the ftp server so simply haven't bothered to enable write back on
