I spent the last couple of days doing a pretty thorough write-up of performance testing the Nvidia MCP-5x RAID controller, the Promise TX-2300, and both FreeBSD and Linux software RAID arrays.



The full article has even more pretty pictures, raw data if you want it, methodology, notes, and commentary. (Protip: both FreeBSD and Linux will double drive throughput - or better - if you tweak their read-ahead cache settings... even using a single vanilla drive, much less a RAID array.)

That's funny because I spent the last couple of days doing a pretty thorough write-up of how awesome OS X is and why Jimbob sucks.

If that's what you call 5 pages of "OMG I <3 PONIES!!!" written in purple ink in a Hello Kitty diary, then, yes... yes you did.

Speaking of which, has he gotten his day-planner yet?

I didn't think to buy a glitter pen, but I'll have to remember that for next time.
