after reading that with the iomega storage… very bad…
i have to share what a fun i have with this raid card…
hardware adaptec 2410sa raid card.
connected to a supermicro storage server
2 sata 80GB mirror for OS
and 4 sata 500GB WD raid edition24/7 HDD’s for raid 5 (only this drives are on the adapted card)
ok and here is the story.
after copying hours data to the new storage server… i monitored the write speed.. the raid 5 writes at 50MB’s + – per second… every thing seems normal.. for a week :-) on morning the storage performance is going down so i check it and i found out that the adaptec card is writing at 1MB’s per second… checking and testing nothing helps…
i take the disk out from the raid and test every disk… write speed is ok 50 MB;s per second… so card is crap… i call the vendor and he replaces the card… again same story copying hours data… and i am back online 50 MB’s per second write speed… 1 and a half week later the new the card shows the same symptoms… performance drops down to 1 mb’s per second…
my conclusion is that THIS ADAPTEC CARD 2410sa is CRAP :evil:
and next week i will test a promise card… i think thats the name…
Question to Admins and moderators….
maybe we can open a list or some sticky post with crap and good hardware :-) ?
