Hey. So I'm no DB master, I'm just trying to figure out why this server is running like it is. We have a WhatsUp Gold server, it's a T300, E6405 (2.13 Ghz), 4 Gig ram. The original setup was dual WD2502ABYS drives in RAID 1 (software raid...blegh) I've moved the dbase on to a WD3000HLFS to give it the IO speed it needs. I've tested the drive and it peaks at 125 Meg/sec read and/or Write. So the hardware is performing as it should. So now I need to look deeper at this database and I don't know what I'm looking at. I don't know if the WhatsUp Gold Database designers made this thing to run stupid slow or what. Here are my %Disk Time and Current Disk Queue stats: (All on a scale of 100.0) %Disk Time Last - 160.00 Average - 351.943 Max - 3,595.800 Current Disk Queue Last - 60 Average 10 Max 129 Avg Disk Queue Length Last - 77 Average - 64 Max - 287.453 To my understanding that's really high. However HDTune Pro shows Read Speed - 6.6 MB/sec Max - 12.4 MB/sec I/O - 164/sec Write Speed - 2.8 MB/sec Mac - 43.8 MB/sec I/O - 120/sec That seems somewhat low to me for the amount length of the disk queue and disk time? The whole reason for this, WhatsUp Gold is timing out while trying to either read or write to the database so I'm trying to resolve that issue. The dbase size is about 24 gig right now. Any help is very much appreciated. Thanks.
