: Hiyas.. I got a P5-166 linux box with an ASUS MB, BusLogic 958 UltraWide
: SCSi controller, 2 IBM DORS ULTRA WIDE SCSi HDs (68pin). And when I boot
: up it shows the HD's set to do 20MB/sec sync... These HDs are suppose to
: do 40MB/sec. Am I missing something? I set the bios for the Buslogic to
: 40mb/sync on both HDs id1 and id2. Is there something I have tweak with in
: teh driver to get it to do so ??
: Both HDs are the same scsi card and bus... Can anyone help or have
: If what you are seeing is:
: scsi0: Target 0: Synchronous at 20.0 mega-transfers/second, offset 15
: then you are getting the full performance unless you've explicitly disabled
: wide transfers.
Also note that the "40" figure you're quoting is the bus channel MAX
BANDWIDTH, _not_ the actualy data transfer speed (excluding bursts).
I seriously doubt that the ibm drive (or any current 'consumer level' drive)
can reach that kind of speed. The actual xfer rate is based on the 'internal
xfer rate' NOT the max channel bandwidth. See the difference?
(not to complain about the buslogic stuff - on the contrary, I'm a BIG
buslogic fan) ;-)
