Re: [opensuse] Slow file copying on openSUSE 12.3

A bit more information. On the slow system:

# hdparm -Tt /dev/sdb

Timing cached reads: 27784 MB in 1.99 seconds = 13934.26 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 468 MB in 3.01 seconds = 155.63 MB/sec

# hdparm -Tt /dev/sda

Timing cached reads: 27776 MB in 1.99 seconds = 13930.08 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 584 MB in 3.00 seconds = 194.66 MB/sec

On a system acting as expected:

# hdparm -Tt /dev/sdb
Timing cached reads: 6852 MB in 2.00 seconds = 3427.26 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 312 MB in 3.01 seconds = 103.56 MB/sec

So at this level they seem to be okay. Not sure what this tells us.

It seems to confirm Dave's allusion to sector misalignment in the partition tables. Are partitions laid out to align with 4k sectors? How was partitioning on the Velicoraptors done (what tool was used to create)?
