    @vps6net said: @NickP @kbar Let us know if you're seeing speeds like that, even 60-80 MB/s is no good -- you should be getting 125 or above with those write tests.

    Looking good today ;)

    What's uname -a report?

    I'm thinking pony6-1?

    If not you should log a ticket for us to check that box, the network should be a lot more like 60 - 80MB/sec

    I had changed my host name, but the control panel reports "512 (node07)".

    I re-ran the test, here's another run through it — IO seems better, network is not too good.

    @jtr can you post that test script? I can't find it with a quick google.

    Sure, just link this post.

    It's possible when you did the IO test it was in the midst of crons or what have you. 200M/sec sounds good and it likely spikes higher.

    It will some since the OVZ's have a much bigger array. You can log a ticket and we can at least check our side to make sure all is OK :)

    The OVZ looks a bit low so you may want to ticket that as well. If you're on node57/58, then the IO looks right for now.

    @eva2000 - likely just a busy node then :) If you feel a bite in lag just let me know and we'll see what we can do. We have a 2.6.32 node still in action that we push troubled customers to, especially ones that love to eat harddrives.

    Nate's speeds are a lot more common around here for OVZ.

    @Aldryic You guys must spend a fortune on Drives and RAID Cards.

  • My reaction exactly when I first ran one on the new storage node.

  • I would guess a RAID card with crazy amount of cache (1GB or more).

    @rds100 said: I would guess a RAID card with crazy amount of cache (1GB or more).

    512M.

    There's a lot of optimizing that goes into each rig. We may take a long time to get stock runs out, but that's because we spend so much time making sure everything is smooth.

    New storage is a fucking beast.
