Areca 1280 benchmarks

Recommended Posts

That is 14 x 150GB Raptors in R0. I have 20 x WD 500GB RE2s to test tonight when I get more of the mini-sas to SATA cables in. Ill post the R/W of both configs and maybe get into R5 and R6 if I have time tonight.

Killer numbers in these results :)

But looks like both your setups are giving very similar results in STR and in access time! Sure there's more limiting factors strongly coming in than the drives only...

AMD,

A few questions...

1. Are you using the 256MB, 1GB or 2GB Cache on the Areca Card.

2. Is it the ARC-1280 or ARC-1280ML that your testing. The SATA cables seem to indicate the ARC-1280, just want to be sure.

3. What volume stripe size are you using in the RAID?

Thanks...Those are great numbers, I am getting similar numbers with the ARC-1261ML and x16 WD Raptor drives. I will be starting on the ARC-1280ML testing today with 24 WD Raptor drives.

1. 2GB

2. ARC-1280ML

3. 64Kb

Any more then about 12 Raptors provides the same performance. The benchmarks I posted are the max of the card or close to it with the correct config. I tried 20 Raptors and got the same numbers.
