What kind of performance issues are you having?
I then attempt to create a a raid6 array on 4 drives - the machine
freezes something fierce during the process.
Can barely key a keystroke in and the machine will not respond to pings.
I moved the card (64bit PCI-X) to the first slot - things got better -
the machine would go in and out of responsiveness.
The array built in about 3 hours, but still seems weird. No unaligned
access eating up time, that I checked.
Maybe I can try a differnt eSata card with port multiplier support - any
Sil (used to be CMD) hardly has a history of making good controllers.
Rather on the contrary.
