6-Disk ZFS On Linux RAID Server Benchmarks
This is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of new ZFS On Linux tests, with today just being some initial numbers while burning in the massive new server from a PTS customer. The new ZOL tests are being done from this 16-core server comprised of dual Intel Xeon E5540 processors, 36GB of RAM, two 147 Seagate SAS drives, and six 300GB SAS drives (H106030SDSUN300G).
The server was running Ubuntu 15.04 x86_64 with the Linux 4.0.0 and running the new release of ZOL.
The stock mount options were tested while running the default mirror mode across the six 10K SAS drives and then trying RAIDZ, RAIDZ1, and RAIDZ2. All drives were wiped and freshly re-configured between each round of benchmarking.
