benchmarking the storages: iSCSI Enterprise Target (+Software RAID0)


This time we got a Software RAID0 Volume with 2 drives which made a volume size of 976784130 sectors = 476945 Megabyte. This Volume is exported with the iSCSI Enterprise Target Software for Linux.

You may ask: Why only 2 drives this time? – The answer: The guy who did the setup of the linux machine did not know how to delete the RAID5 volume he created for the previous benchmark. So there where only 2 250 Gigabyte drives left…and yes: we sometimes have a subliminal feeling that we have to hurt him.
