Correct MaxTransfer Masks

Post by Bill All » Tue, 23 Feb 1993 07:43:23

Can somebody recommend some MASK and MAXTRANSFER settings for
a 10meg-ram A3000/16Mhz with a 170meg SCSI Quantum ELS-170?

      MASK         MAXTRANSFER
1) "0FFF FFFE" and "7FFF FFFF"
2) "7FFF FFFE" and "00FF FFFF"

I've been using #1 on my other drives.

But I'm seeing WB2.1 Tools/HDtoolBox coming up with #2 as default for
the ELS-170.

How does one determine these values correctly to gain the most benefits?
(Without too much trial and error.)

1. Mask and MaxTransfer

This is probably a FAQ, or should be...

How do I define the proper values for Mask and MaxTransfer for a given
controller, file system and HD combination?
