Re: SCSI or IDE
Can you give us a command to call (using bonnie++ binaries) that will
give a more real-world test of filesystem and disk performance? I'd
like to see how bonnie++ differs from hdparm in results.

Yes the disk reads is a more realistic real world test :
Timing buffer-cache reads: 128 MB in 1.23 seconds =104.07 MB/sec
guf:~# hdparm -t /dev/sda5
hdparm is NOT a real world test!
In real world operation you use a file system not direct access to
Bonnie++ is one of many file system benchmarks that you can use to get
results that are more useful than hdparm.
If you want to look at the performance of a raw device then use zcav (part of
Bonnie++), it allows you to easily graph the varying performance across a
