That looks reasonable to me - very fast from the cache and a lot slower
when it has to be buffered (on the hard drive, presumably). But, what do I
That is not even close to reasonable. I have never seen buffered reads THAT
Timing cached reads: 1316 MB in 2.09 seconds = 629.02 MB/sec

And I get this...
Timing buffer-cache reads: 1024 MB in 2.00 seconds = 511.06 MB/sec

1.85 MB/sec looks *very* slow to me.
