comment How do I best sum bogomips?
@Ignacio: What would be a better benchmark? I just need a quick-and-easy way to half a bunch of servers into two halfs, each half should have approximately the same cpu power.

indeed, console is not a fit for our business people :-) For me personally it is - I'm a screen fan

thanks for the hint, gives me confidence to go more into the Jabber direction

thanks for the hint with Spark - although the client is from 2007 it looks like "reduced to the max"

comment MSSQL error: consistency-based I/O error - can it be caused by an MSSQL or OS problem?
for the record: the RAID controller was toast, the disks were fine, with the new RAID controller SQLIOSim runs through without errors

for the record - after SQLIOSim threw so many errors we exchanged the RAID controller - SQLIOSim is now green, yey!

we've looked into Jabber (Adium as client, openfire as server), but we run into so many problems: 1. we didn't see if the other client was online 2. joining channels on Adium often just does nothing - no error, etc. Jabber felt so much behind IRC - especially the clients.

I'm not sure we use ECC, how do I check that? We have a "write cache" activated in RAID that is 500MB, we now disabled this to check if this could be the problem

thanks for the hint with SQLIOSim. In fact, SQLIOsim found a (repeating) error: Error: 0x80070467 Error Text: While accessing the hard disk, a disk operation failed even after retries. Description: Buffer validation failed on D:\sqliosim.mdx Page: 186061, offset 0x8

Thanks for the link to "Top tips" - I read it and introduced a few things - daily check of consistency - alert if a consistency error occurrs

fyi: I've cross posted this question at microsoft.com and got a bunch of good remarks there as well: social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqldatabaseengine/thread/…

Thanks a lot, Page_Verify is set to checksum, we have "Red Gate" that helps us with the backups. Good tip about the maintenance plan to check for consistency!
