 Improving the Ultimate Linux Box

Linux Journal tells us how they improved the ultimate Linux box.

"Things were similar in the random read department; I ended up with a 3.70 to 2.17 advantage at 8 threads. At only 2 threads, though, the advantage wasn't much. SCSI still owns the random writes department with a steady 30something mb/sec rate--until you get to 8 threads. Then, the ULB edges out at 21.87 to 18.76; this is a drastic improvement over the 10-13mb/sec rate achieve with the old configuration."
