    System->Admin->Disk Utility->Benchmark results

    Post your benchmark results. I only did read benchmark as it gave error for read/write saying hard drive needs to be empty (I'm running RC on liveusb)

    I have asus eeebox b202 160gb 5400RPM

    I'm really interested to see what people get and whether this benchmark utility gives 1/2 decent results.

    Anyone with SSD please test. I want to see if it gives out numbers similar to what ssd are supposed to provide or if not good for ssd benchmarking. Wondering whether worth it to buy 30gb ssd for eeebox as read/write speeds are slow for obvious reasons (I already have 60gb ssd in main computer).

    Oddly it states my hard drive is connected by ATA, but I'm pretty sure it is SATA (ICH7, SATA IDE host controller).

    I ran the test on my ocz rally2 usb stick and got 31.1 min read, 34.9 max read, 34mb/s average read. Average access time 0.9ms

    EDIT:
    The ATA thing is probably a bug, as it says all HDD/SSD are ATA for model.

    Thanks for pointing out the nifty bench utility feature.

    Your drive may be showing up under IDE mode if you don't have the controller set to ahci/sata in the bios. Just beware switching modes can halt a WinXP partition from booting; linux, vista and win7 seem handle switching it ok.

    I'm using a 60gb SSD (indilinx barefoot chip), intel sata ICH8M controller.

    Thanks for the info Tweak42. Glad to see 192 average, I have 60gb indilinx as well. Great stuff, and prices are dropping good now.
    Maybe change your signature to say 60gb SSD?

    Thanks for the HDD benchmark sdowney717

    Above is good news. I have old firmware(1.3), but I am only using 6gb, so that is probably why so fast.

    max 117.9
    avg 85.7

    Can anyone confirm if safe to do read/write benchmark? Don't want to screw any of my stuff up.

    Those were first runs - repeat them and the numbers change a bit (not much)

    Wouldn't it be really useful to indicate somewhere on these plots what the green dots and the blue line actually meant ?

    Do the green dots refer to the left-hand axis or the right-hand axis ?

    Wouldn't it be great if the axes were labelled, rather than just giving units, and expecting the user to guess ?

    How do you actually interpret the blue line ? It just doesn't seem to make sense ? How can a reading be for 0% of the time, or for that matter 100% of the time ?

    From a data analysis point of view it is a poor representation of data.

    Right now Ubuntu is installed at the end of the disk - time to get rid of Windows 7 and give Ubuntu the much faster beginning.
