Damn those have gotten cheap. Would consider moving from 10GbE to 10GB IB if ESXi supported a virtual switch w/ one, yet still keeping RDMA.

Wish 10Gb switches would come down in price. Was going to buy a few of those cards.

What is the best way to test a new hard drive? I decided to rebuild my NAS so I bought 4x4TB HGST drives and want to test all of them before putting them into the build with xpenology OS and giving synology hybrid raid a go.

What do you mean test a drive?
You want to test them individually?
I run 2 SANs each on SAS cards with 12 2tb Hitachi Travelstar 7.2k and 16 3tb Toshiba x300 7.2k drives both in raid 6 and I get that you might want to test 4 drives... You can low level format them and if they hold the run you kind of have you answer... that would be a good test to do. Beside that if one fails, redundancy is there for that, claim it on warranty then just replace it... That's what it's meant for no? thumb.gif

Well i just bought 4 disk from newegg and received them yesterday. I wanted to make sure all four survived the shipping before putting them to use. The only thing ive done so far is crystaldisk to check them. I was thinking of doing a Windows slow format as well on each one of them, just figured i ask to see if there is any stress test programing to try

I'd just check smart.

I always do a full read, full zero, full read with the manufacturer software or WD Lifeguard if they don't have one. I started doing that about 5 years ago when I used unRAID and it's been a very reliable way to pick out bad drives. You can also/alternately use software like Stablebit Scanner to actively watch the drives SMART and filesystem health.

This. You simply put them into production as that is the exact environment they need to survive in. Your back-ups & redundancy should cover any premature fails, which you then claim on warranty.

Zeroing a drive is THE ONLY way to test it. Anything else is not as thorough.
post #3730 of 4324
Thanks for all the answers. I will try zeroing all four drives then checking it. Figure I at least try check them now while I can still return to newegg within 30 days then just throw it into a system then rely on manufacturing warranty. At least this way I have the newegg return and warranty if one were to be bad within the 30 days
