Ok. People were asking me to do this comparison since I have both IDE RAID and SCSI RAID on my system. The results from SiSandra are not what I expected. My SCSI RAID gets lower marks than the IDE RAID (I'm assuming higher is better). Also, my drives have a 3.9 ms seek time but Sandra reports like 10 ms but the IDE is only 8.
Here are the Marks
Buffered Read : 34
Seq Read : 38
Random Read : 6
Buffered Write: 15
Seq Write : 35
Random Write : 19
Avg Seek : 10 ms
Buffered Read : 69
Seq Read : 53
Random Read : 7
Buffered Write: 38
Seq Write : 36
Random Write : 9
Avg Seek : 8 ms
This is so weird and I'm not sure what's going on. I'm running Windows 2000 SP1 and you can click on the link to see my full system specs.
Anyone have any ideas on what's going on and how I can fix this?
Stormblade......id be VERY interested in hearing about this as well..as anyone whos been around these boards will tell you ive been debating IDE vs SCSI raid for awhile....only thing is..i think we need more info here, which drives your using, controllers, settings, MB, the whole 9 yards.
Please advise as i know i, and probably alot of others are real interested

The link I provided at the bottom is a link to my complete system configuration. Drive types, controller types, amount of memory, Operating system etc.
On the advice of a few people I've gotten rid of Sisandra. So now I'm in need of a decent benchmarking utility. Right now I grabbed a disk benchmarking utility from ATTO and the results are a bit more in line with what I was thinking.
According to these benchmarks it shows the SCSI RAID to be faster on read and writes than the IDE RAID. However, I still want to get some good benchmark utilities.
The worth of your opinion is in direct proportion to the number of people who have asked for it
