SubjectRe: 3ware 6410 RAID 10 performance?
And yet more data -

Under 2.2.15 using 3ware's driver rather than the one shipped with the
kernel, one complete read goes at 35MB/sec (nice). The second one starts
out there and then drops down to 4MB/sec at the 1.2GB offset.

Here's the cool part - if I unmount, rmmod the driver, insmod, mount, and
then run again, I get exactly the same behavior as above.

This starts to sound like some resource in the kernel or the card are
getting used up and removing the card frees them.

Has anyone seen this besides me?
