I've got a Compag Proliant ML350 server with Dual P3-866 CPUs and 256MB RAM. This system also has a Smart Array 3200 Controller in it attached to a Compaq Storage System U2 external array cabinet. The cabinet houses 8 out of 11 50GB Seagate drives and the server houses 3 more of these drives. I'm using U160 rated cable from Compaq all the way around. The problem I have is that the card seems to be sync-ing with the drives at Fast SCSI (20MB/sec) no matter what I do. The drives are capable of 80MB/sec, the SCSI backplane on the external chassis can do 40MB/sec, the cable can do 160MB/sec, the controller can do 80MB/sec per channel (dual channel). It seems as though I should be getting 40MB/sec over the whole bus, but for some reason I can't get over 20MB/sec and this is killing my performance for network transfers over my Gigabit connection to the server. Anyone have any suggestions for things I can try or does anyone know of any settings within this card to change sync rate? Yes, termination is good on the card and on the backplanes of the cabinet, and oddly enough, it's not just one channel of the card that is syncing slower, but both.
