Disk Benchmarking

StorageReview.com – Tiki. Now that I’ve got my hard drives lined up, I’m curious how to measure performance. For instance if I go to RAID-0, is it really worth the trouble.
The StorageReview.com FAQ at least tells you some benchmarks to avoid. Most are not great, surprising given the impact of disk on performance. Best freeware one is “h2benchw”:ftp://ftp.heise.de/pub/ct/ctsi/h2benchw.zip from c’t magazine apparently.
