The theoretical speed of SATA is 150 MB/sec, correct?
# /sbin/hdparm -t /dev/sda
Timing buffered disk reads: 168 MB in 3.02 seconds = 55.67 MB/sec
I'm consistently getting results in the ~55 MB/sec range.
Has anyone else run these tests on SATA? What results?
I'm curious if that's normal due to system overheard, or if
there's a chance I could use some hard drive tweaking for
a little bit more performance out of my box.
