Online.net Dedibox XC 2016 BIOS Bug?
I've ordered the Dedibox XC 2016 HDD version to use for my personal needs, but I noticed some serious slow down during filesystem creation via mkfs.ext4. So I rebooted under Rescue system just to find out the hilarious write speed of their hard drive
dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/sda1/test bs=1M count=100 conv=fdatasync 100+0 records in 100+0 records out 104857600 bytes (105 MB) copied, 8.3943 s, 12.5 MB/s
I should mention that the read speed was ok and always stayed at 100MB/s+. I created a support ticket and their rep said:
Online - Julien Hello, thanks for your patience. After further check, it seems like we have a BIOS bug affecting our XC. The port is not running properly (SATA II instead of SATA III) and offer lower performance that it should. Our engineering team is already working on it, and we'll deliver a patch in the coming weeks for that kind of issue. Regards, Julien V. L2 Technician @ Online.net.
I don't think that is the case though, since if that was true all other customers would experience the same issue. Is it?
