We are running a Dell PowerEdge T710 with a PERC H200 RAID controller and two mirrored SAS drives.
We just patched to Update 2 because our SAS drives were extremely slow and it mentioned somewhere straight 4.0 esxi didn't support our controller. Anyways, after installing I ran CyrstalDiskMark 3.0 x64 benchmarking on a WinServer 2008 VM with nothing else running on the machine. I was getting faster numbers than my local dev computer's 10,000rpm raptor drive but the times still seem a bit off.
less than 10 rep so can't post images or > 1 link apparently
Any advice on how to speed this up or anything I could be doing wrong? The read speeds are probably about write but writing is slow, the problem is I really don't know what sort of numbers I should be expecting.
