Don't get these write figures on the hard drive...


I've got a 15K Hitachi SAS drive (HUS151414VLS300) on my Dell 690 machine. I've ran ATTO Disk Benchmark what it shows is that the write speed on small file sizes is virutally non-existant (although the read speed is fine) and on large file sizes it's normal. It's only on this drive that I seem to have these problems. I've got other SAS drives connected to the same controller and their fine. Other external/internal drives are no problems either. There is no write cache enabled biut it isn't enabled on the other drives either.

Here's a link to the results:

  3. im thinking that it may be because of the small file sizes. it doesn't have enough time to really start its max transfer speeds before the files are writen
  4. I have a couple of other 15K SAS drives and they seem to be fine.
