Any hints what params should I set with IOZONE?
"Default" iozone -a -b results.xls isn't best choice, right?
I have Q6600, 8GB RAM, PERC 5/i, PERC 5/e, PERC 6/i and bunch of SAS drives.

PERC 6/i = LSI MegaRAID SAS 8888ELP:
http://www.lsi.com/storage_home/products_home/internal_raid/megaraid_sas/megaraid_sas_8888elp/
but this is LSI firmware - not DELL firmware.

I hope this link will work for you and this is the latest firmware version:
DELL PERC 6/i firmware

No worries, it has evolved into a generic PERC thread... 5/i, 6/i, and even the H series cards are being actively discussed smile.gif

Hey guys.

I'm considering buying a Norco 4220, and it uses miniSAS-connectors for the drives.

My question is, can I still use my dell perc 5/i with this, is there a converte from 8484 to 8087?

I've found this http://serialcables.com/largeview.asp?cat=260&tier=255&id=1087

But I not sure at all about this, some cables says HOST to TARGET, and some say the other way around, TARGET to HOST, can anyone explain that?

Regards

Fozzie

normally due to incorrect cables. You do have SAS host to SATA target cables and not the other way around?

You want 8484 HOST to 8087 TARGET. The host is the controller card, the target is the backplane.

That being said, they do make controller cards with 8087 connectors and backplanes with 8484 connectors, in which case you would be going 8087 HOST to 8484 TARGET, but not in your situation.

What drives do you have ? There could be a problem with old SATA-I drives - DuckieHo reported that old WD Raptors won't work post #1746 and post #1773.
