Bonnie++ for deskside JackRabbit

This is a 15 drive JackRabbit unit (under $6500 USD the way we have it configured), where we carved 2 drives out for OS, and built a RAID6 across 12 drives, with 1 hot spare. Just finished the other tests. Pretty pleased with the results. Still have to do driver and kernel updates, but I want a simple baseline test. So here it is.

This uses Ubuntu 8.04 … we should likely go back to 7.10 for our tests for apples to apples. The 2.6.24 kernel is known to have some performance regressions.
