    Highpoint rocketraid 4310 results?

    grandpooba2 Level 1

      I just finished our weekend build and used a program to give me a rough idea of where the raid drives sit as far as speed. I am getting write speed of 182 and a read of 390. This free prog was called parkdale speed test. Simple tester but seems to have alot of choices to test. My question is are these decent speeds for a raid 3?

       

      Now here is the setup.

       

      Raid 3 on the highpoint:

       

      2x1tb seagate 32mb cache

      2X 500 seagate 32mb cache

       

      I know we are wasting drive space here.

       

      I am thinking that this might not be the best scenario but I cannot jump into any more drives right now due to business budget

       

      I am starting to lean towards the raid 0 and use the other two drives for backups and what not.

       

      Ideas ?

       

      ADDED:

       

      I just setup a simple raid 0 and my results looked much more even.

      4000mbyt file

       

      write 333

      read 361.6

       

       

      That sounds a bit better on the write times. I don't know where I would have lost the extra write speed on the Raid 3. Another question.

      Sorry guys. Any takers?
