I'm going to update my last reply... After moving all the data over to
this box.. I've noticed the same "dog slow i/o" as reported by:
brien <brienfwd at bigfoot.com>
I was running a backup of files, from/to the same partition of about 8.5GB
and it took about 20 minutes I'd guess.. This is crazy as it didn't take
much more than that to move the data over the network to the server.
The box is almost the same config: pe2450, 2x 933p3, 1gb ram, perc 3/si,
raid 5 (4x18-10k), running ext2
I'm going to myself check the changelogs... see if I can see anything...
to the hunt..
