My 100MB/s equates to 6GB/min. Think thats down to the raid setup etc but still good enough for now. When I install the newer version on a fresh server I’ll do some tuning and tweaking on switches etc. Junkhacker’s 6.5GB/min is quite nice and on a gigabit network you wont be pushing past around 6.7GB/min including overheads so thats quite a decent figure.
I’ve noticed also that a number of people are suggesting Debian 7.x so I’m downloading 7.6 as I write. I’ll give this a go. Realistically I’d love for fog to be installable on something like Free or OpenBSD at some point in the future.
Anyhow, I’ll try Debian 7.6 in work when I get back on tuesday and see how it performs. I’ll be setting up mdadm raid5 on 5x2TB WD-Red’s as thats whats available to me as a server for now. Once I know its all working well I’ll throw it on the vmware platform perhaps.
