Ok, my backups from one of my linux servers takes 5 days to finish...my window is 36 hours, not working right. Throughput of about 1.5GB/hour.
So in my testing, copying a 158MB directory to the server takes about 1 Minute 5 seconds. Copying same structure off the box takes almost 7 minutes. Network switches show no issues/error. iostat shows slow to no throughput at all on read.
SO, the million dollar question is, what should I look at for fixing this?? Do I use hdparm?
