I have a pair of x25-M 160 Intel SSD's in an HP DL360 G5 with a p400i Smart Array running 512 BBWC. The disk performance I am getting on this box and another identical one does not come close to matching the same two drives running through a cheap 3ware RAID card. Any idea?
I have played with the cache settings, but nothing allows me to get the same results. It seems like the Smart Array controller is the bottleneck.
