I have setup an HP All-in-One Storage Server with an iSCSI device that
I have mounted on a Debian machine.
Unfortunately I'm not very versed on the world of benchmarking, I have
svn:/etc# hdparm -tT /dev/sda1
Timing cached reads: 1486 MB in 1.99 seconds = 744.98 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 12 MB in 3.50 seconds = 3.43 MB/sec
svn:/etc# hdparm -i /dev/sda1
HDIO_GET_IDENTITY failed: Invalid argument
But the -i error makes me wonder if the results are reliable
What kind of benchmarks can I get to see if it is worth to use iSCSI
with this HP Storage server?
