That sounds pretty close Pat.
I can say that I use an EMC AX100 (12 x 250GB SATA Disks) . I have the
disks split up into two luns (About 1TB of Raid-5 each), over a 1Gb FC
attached back to a Sun V240. I have added both luns into a ZFS pool,
and see read performance at about 120MB/s sustained, and write
performance ~75MB/s sustained.
I'd use all four ports at the back of the AX100, but MPxIO just
confounds me. Has anyone had any real success with MPxIO on EMC?
