Performance Tuning White Paper (PDF)
Getting the best performance from a RAID subsystem is both an art and a science. Specific rules can be used in known configurations to enhance performance, but in most cases you will need to analyze the system I/O patterns to determine the appropriate changes that need to be made. Faster processors, faster and higher density system RAM, and faster front-side bus architectures will increase the performance of most applications.
Many factors affect overall system performance. This white paper discusses only the practical application of changing the configuration settings for the Intel® RAID controller SRCS16, and the settings for the relative hard disk and logical array to adjust the RAID I/O performance.
|Note||The information provided here also applies to the Intel® RAID controller SRCS28X.|
