Yesterday we have put up a new server. It’s not our usual configuration. This time we have aimed at a high-end machine.
Processor: 2x Intel Xeon E5530 (4x 2.40Ghz, 8 MB L2 – QPI 5.6 GT/sec)
RAM: 24 GB DDR3 ECC, 1066MHz
RAID Controller: LSI MegaRAID SAS 8888ELP 512MB DDRII Cache (667MHz)
RAID level: 5
Disk drives: 12x WD RE4 (2 TB SATA , 64 MB Cache, 7200 RPM)
NIC: Qlogic QLE3142-CU-CK (Dual Port 10GbE PCIe 2.0 adapter)
Additional info: It is possible to add 2x DAS Shelf (12x WD RE4 (2 TB SATA, 64 MB Cache, 7200 RPM) connected trough SAS 12 Gbps (4x 3Gbps))
The server is connected to an all new network infrastructure.
We kindly ask You to assist us with some tests. Please let us know in the comments which download speeds do You get, from which location and what is Your network connections bandwidth.
If the tests succeed every new server added to our infrastructure will be of exactly the same configuration.
