Re: Running slower after raid0

I´m running kernel 2.6.8 from stable. After trying a lot of possible solutions, I faced (possibly) the solution. This machine has four memory slots and is able to deal with 4GB. When I use the four 1GB memory chips, I get the system running pretty slowly. If I take off one of the chips, everything turns out to be fine, and the raid performance goes up to 107MB/sec.
The kernel is compiled to support 4GB of memory. So why is this happening?
Thanks everyone,

What kernel are you running? I don't have it that bad, with 2.6.13, but it's
definately slower than earlier 2.6 kernels. raid0 performance used to be
very good. raid1 has always sucked (reads no faster than a single drive).

Timing buffered disk reads:  322 MB in   3.01 seconds = 107.06 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads:  216 MB in  3.03 seconds =  71.37 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads:  218 MB in  3.01 seconds =  72.53 MB/sec
