Taking our little L. flavigularis for a few tests. Its motherboard needs the 2.6.17 and above kernels. Used Ubuntu Edgy Eft (6.10) for it. Even had the latest version of the drivers we needed built in. Install was easy. The specs on the unit are incredible (initial performance data below). Built the disk arrays (ok, started the build, it takes a while). 26TB RAID6 usable before formatting. Cool. 25TB after formatting.

But just how fast is our little L. flavigularis?
While the RAID6 was building, we ran a little bonnie++. Yeah, not a great test while a RAID is building, you aren’t going to hit full performance of the unit.
Running on a single controller.
