    Normal read speeds but slow write speeds (~4MB/s) in 13.04.

    I'm seeing very slow write speeds to one of my hard drives in my computer. When I benchmarked the drive in Disks it says Av. read = 140MB/s and Av. write = 4MB/s. The computer is a HP Proliant Microserver n54L. The drive was taken from a 2TB Seagate Expansion external hard drive and is just used for data storage, the OS is on another drive. I don't think it's a problem with the hard drive because when I briefly used it as an external I never noticed any slow write speeds. The drive formatted in Ext3. Can anybody help me out with this, I'm new to Linux in general so I'm not 100% sure that it isn't something I've inadvertently done myself?

    Hi

    Check the output of syslog while writing data to the disk and also search syslog for references to the disk.

    Does it provide any clues ?

    Kind regards

    Re: Normal read speeds but slow write speeds (~4MB/s) in 13.04.

    This is the output of the syslog, are the invalid CHS sectors a sign of the drive failing?

    Edit: I changed SATA ports and that didn't solve the problem so I put the drive back in the enclosure it came in and writing to it from Ubuntu was back to normal, it must be a problem with the computer not the OS. I'll try posting in an HP forum.

    Re: Normal read speeds but slow write speeds (~4MB/s) in 13.04.

    Hi

    I'm not sure what that error is but, as you have suggested, i would look at hardware issues first.

    Kind regards
