My network speed test, with and without a parity drive


Recommended Posts

I'm sure other people have done speed tests and know already that parity drives slow down writes to the array. But I was just experimenting with a speed test with and without a parity drive. I have a gigabit network and transferred over a 4.36GB file.


With the parity drive it took 113 seconds. Without the parity drive it took 48 seconds. Pretty big difference, cuts the time down more than half. My peak bandwidth was almost 900 Mbps. In the picture below you can see a visual on the actual test using DUMeter. Just thought it was interesting and figured I'd share it with everyone.
