RE: PowerEdge VRTX Shared Storage [Redundant PERC8] extremely slow?
13MB/s is quite slow. Those speeds are normal with sustained writes on our lower end controllers without cache, but the SPERC should be faster than that. It appears something is wrong.
Are you using Dell certified drives?
Did you install VMware using our custom ISO that contains SAS drivers specifically for the SPERC?
Are the virtual disks in shared mode or assigned only to a single node?
