I think my hard drive is pretty well tuned:
04:38PM/root at enuffbox>hdparm -tT /dev/hda
Timing buffer-cache reads: 128 MB in 0.40 seconds =323.23 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 64 MB in 1.39 seconds = 46.11 MB/sec
heres my settings:
04:39PM/root at enuffbox>hdparm /dev/hda
multcount = 16 (on)
IO_support = 3 (32-bit w/sync)
unmaskirq = 1 (on)
using_dma = 1 (on)
keepsettings = 1 (on)
readonly = 0 (off)
readahead = 1 (on)
geometry = 7297/255/63, sectors = 117231408, start = 0
>hdparm -t /dev/hda.
>If it is <10mb/sec, then you need to tune your hdd. try -d1 first (DMA on)
>man hdparm for more info.
