We have several new DELL R900 servers which have 5 internal disks (PERC 6/i with 450GB SAS disks).  we configured it as 0,1 mirror and 2,3 mirror and 4 single disk.

When we doing performance test and found "dump" very slow.  The O.S. servers using are Centos 5.3 or 5.4.


1. we did setup "blockdev":
    # blockdev --getra /dev/sdc3
     4096

2. when we using dump for 16GB data (first logical volume to third logical volume) and it take 26 min to finish (10MB/sec).
