How long does it take to build Raid10 Array fresh?
So I'm building a raid 10 array on an adaptec 6405e with 4 300GB WD Raptors..... I did a 'secure erase' from the adaptec menu and then selected 'build & verify' on the raid creation menu. I am only getting about 87MB/s on a dd test from within the centos6 install I did.... shouldn't I be getting in excess of 200MB/s ? I checked the drives with the latest version of smartctl and they are all fine.
(To get the 6405e to work with centos I installed the drivers adaptec made available pre install then once installed I upgraded the kernel and installed kmod-aacraid module because on kernel update the adaptec drivers do not stick. )
