Just installed Freebsd 7.2 amd64 on a HP proliant 385. Having an issue with the cciss raid controller being really slow. It's got 5 300GB disks in raid 5. And I found this strange looking message in dmesg:
Code:
da0 at ciss0 bus 0 target 0 lun 0
da0: <COMPAQ RAID 5  VSOMLPU:M EAP  OCKP>U  F#ix3e dL aDunicrheecdt! A
da0: 1S3M5P: .A1P6 8CMPBU/ s# t2r aLanusnfcehresd
da0: 1144391MB (2343712796 512 byte sectors: 255H 63S/T 65535C)
Looks weird and I can't find any info on it on google.

dmesg is supposed to look more like this:
Code:
da0 at ciss0 bus 0 target 0 lun 0
da0: <COMPAQ RAID 5  VOLUME OK> Fixed Direct Access SCSI-5 device 
da0: 135.168MB/s transfers
da0: Command Queueing Enabled
da0: 715329MB (1464994160 512 byte sectors: 255H 32S/T 65535C)

The box is just laggy. Running pkg_info for instance; it uses 6s to list 44 ports, it should do that in a snap.

Anyways, the dmesg message just doesn't look right to me...

Code:
dd if=/dev/random of=/tmp/test bs=8m
and in other terminal run gstat as root
or
iostat -c 999
