Debian Hardware :: Servers Which Contain SATA Disks And SAS Disks?

Feb 25, 2010

I have servers which contain SATA disks and SAS disks. I was testing the speed of writing on these servers and I recognized that SAS 10.000 disks much more slowly than the SATA 7200. What do you think about this slowness? What are the reasons of this slowness?

I am giving the below rates (values) which I took from my test (from my comparisons between SAS 10.000 and SATA 7200);

dd if=/dev/zero of=bigfile.txt bs=1024 count=1000000 when this comment was run in SAS disk server, I took this output(10.000 rpm)

(a new server,2 CPU 8 core and 8 gb ram)

1000000+0 records in
1000000+0 records out
1024000000 bytes (1.0 GB) copied, 12.9662 s, 79.0 MB/s (I have not used this server yet) (hw raid1)

Ubuntu Installation :: USB Detected Beofre The Sata Disks Are?

Oct 19, 2010

used to run ARC linux and Windows 7 on my computer and i am now trying to install Ubuntu 10.10 X86_64When i used the live disc of Ubuntu 10.04 and load the installer it finds my four harddrive they way it should... sda,sdb,sdc,and sdd...When i however try the same with ubuntu 10.10 it displays my usb cardreaders drives first and then my hardrives as sde sdf sdg and sdh.I tried installing ubuntu with the reader unplugged and then reconnecting it after installation...But when i then boot with the reader attached it says it cannot mount drives sda,sdb,sdc and sdd becuase they are not ready.I think it is again detecting the usb cardreader before the sata controller ...Is there a way for me to alter the boot detection order so it will find my harddrives first and then the usb cardreaders ports ?

Ubuntu Servers :: Mount 4 Internal Sata Disks Using Hal On Installation?

Jan 20, 2010

i currently try to mount 4 internal sata disks using hal on a server installation?

i did

apt-get install hal and copied a .fdi script to /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/30-storage-all.fdi

as far is i understand now i need a hal/dbus client
gnome-volumen-manager seems to be one
apt-get install gnome-volume-manager

now im stuck there is no such executable like gnome-volumen-manager thus, how does it work? how can i start it? how do i know if and why the .fdi script works or fails?

since its a server edition and its purpose should be a very minimized server install i dont want a GUI like gnome fully installed

Fedora Installation :: After Preupgrade: F15 Doesn't Recognize Sata Disks Connected Through Marvell Controller

May 31, 2011

I upgraded F14 to F15; However, F15 no longer recognizes my 3 sata disks connected through Marvell controller. The controller is an integrated Marvell chipset 88SE6480. The controller has its own manufacturer driver but it was intended for RHEL 5.4 (mv64xx) and installation of this driver fails to generate mv64xx driver.

Ubuntu :: Possible To Automount Usb Disks With Acl Enabled?

May 4, 2011

Is it possible to automatically mount usb disks with access control lists enabled? I mean, WITHOUT adding a line to /etc/fstab for a specific disk;

I want to mount ALL ext4 disks automatically with the acl option (to preserve acls in backups. I don't want to set specific acls on my backup disks; just preserve existing acls).

I already tried enabling acl in /etc/fstab for / and modifying the acl for /media; it did not work (the modification was not even accepted).

Also, I cannot find anything in /etc/hal or /etc/udev that would be modifiable with my knowledge.

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Poor I/O Performance On IDE/SATA Disks?

Jan 13, 2010

I've just removed fedora 10 and installed CentOS 5.4 both x86_56 on my Lenovo ThinkCentre 9091-CTO workstation, and observed serious performance degradation while intensive I/O operations and huge load without significant CPU consumption in user mode with about 50% in I/o wait.For example if I do the "tar xjvf some_large_tar.bz" file and run vmstat i get the output below. This is the only cpu and io intensive process running. The load gets up to 6 on C2D CPU and the machine has unacceptable responsivness.

OpenSUSE Install :: Installer Will Not Detect Hard Disks (SATA)?

Dec 19, 2009

Trying to install SUSE on a perfectly working PC that was running Windows. Blew away all the partitions and formated the drives.When trying to install SUSE, Installer will not detect my two hard disks. Tried with version 10.x, 11.1 and 11.2, without success.My Mobo is a XFX GeForce 8209, and my SATA drives are both Seagates (1x120GB, 1x320GB). I've tried different SATA mode selection (i.e. SATA, AHCI, and RAID) without any success either.I've tried to look for SATA controller drivers for my Mobo, to try to load on Installer startup, but failed there too.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 - Dell SAS / SATA Virtual Disks (RAID 1)

Sep 17, 2010

I have a Dell Studio XPS running openSUSE 11.2 with dual mirrored disks (using Dell's SATA controller). Does anyone know how I can set up automatic monitoring of the disks so that I will be informed if either fail? I think smartd might be what I need here. Is that correct? I added:
/dev/sda -a -d sat -m <my email>
/dev/sda -a -d sat -m <my email>

smartd is running, but how do I know that it will report what I need? I also have a client with a Dell PowderEdge SC440 with SAS 5/iR also running openSUSE 11.2. They also require automatic monitoring. There doesn't seem to be a SAS directive for smartd. I notice that the newer release says it does support SAS disk. I upgraded to 5.39. On restart (with DEVICESCAN as the directive) I get the following in /var/log/messages for my SAS RAID disk.

Ubuntu Installation :: Which Disks Can Be Main Boot Disks

Mar 31, 2010

I have/had a PC with several hard drives, and a mix of ubuntu and windows on multi boot.The old boot drive died screaming, and I need to start again. (But my data is safe! yay!)

Is there anything special about which drive can be the main drive to start booting from? Or to put it another way, can I install to any of the other 3 and expect it to work, or do I need to switch them around so a different drive is on the connections for the recently dead one?

Ubuntu :: SATA II / Error "ata4: Limiting SATA Link Speed To 1.5 Gbps" - Allowing The SSD To Run At SATA II Speeds?

May 1, 2011

I keep getting this error in my log viewer every 2 seconds: Code: ata4: limiting SATA link speed to 1.5 Gbps I have a dual boot SSD and I have run many SMART tests in windows and linux, (using smartmon tools and the disk utility) and the reports are all 100% healthy..... My research shows that this error represents one of the following:

1. Problem with SATA controller
2. Changing BIOS to allow SATA
3. Changing SATA mode to PATA or AHCI
4. Replacing the SATA cable
5. Allowing the SSD to run at SATA II speeds, i.e. 3 Gbps

- Does anyone know how to try number 5, i.e. allowing the SSD to run at SATA II speeds? I am lost here and this problem has caused my machine to crash twice when watching a movie in linux/ ubuntu. (It is worth noting that the crashes have only occurred in linux and I have never had an issue in windows, so it does seem to be a linux setting somewhere, hence why I think it is a "allowing SATA II to run at correct speeds issue")

Ubuntu :: Installing From USB Into SATA SSD, But GRUB Never Start?

May 23, 2011

I'm trying to install Natty from a USB thumb drive on a SATA SSD. My main system is OS X. The method to create an instal USB disk on the download page didn't yield a bootable disk (the partition was readble, with the right files, but GRUB never started). The quick method from the clemsonlinux wiki gave me a minimal bootable drive, though.From there, I tried to install Natty on my SSD.

Once again, the partitioning process appears to work fine, the files are copied, no problem, but the GRUB install fails silently.I think that the problem comes from the fact that, when I boot from the USB drive (even if the SSD is set as the first boot device), the SSD ends up at /dev/sdb, whereas it would be at /dev/sda if the machine could be booted from the SSD.I chose the automatic partitioning method and ends up with sda1 (/), sda2 (ext) and sda5 (swap).If I launch the installer in recovery mode and ask to mount /dev/sdb1 as root, mount reports that sda1 is / (sda1 doesn't even exist), but blkid reports the SSD as /dev/sdb.

The output of the boot_inf_script is clearly pathological, but I didn't manage to get it out of the machine with what I have (gmail is broken in lynx).I've also tried to install LILO instead of GRUB. LILO boots, but doesn't find /dev/sdb (which is now /dev/sda) and gives me a busybox prompt.I've tried to install GRUB from there, but, once again, I get a black screen at boot time.

Red Hat :: Won't Start Macbook Nvidia SATA Hard Drive

Jan 22, 2011

I have REHL 6 Desktop. I have a macbook pro 7,1 with nvidia graphics and (I believe)a nvidia sata controller. I have fedora currently installed with no problems during or after installation ( with a few drivers of of course).

When I boot with the disk i burned ( works on other computers) it comes up of a list of devices to select and when i select local CDROM or DVD it goes to select drivers. So, then I tried "burning" the installation files to an external hard drive then I used the DVD to boot and selected Hard Disk then selected SDB1 (path of external HD). With this method I get to the Graphic installation screen and can go to the part were it says custom partitioning. I select ok then it say the only disk that is available is SDB1 (EXTERNAL).

Ubuntu :: SATA Libata Verses Silicom Images SATA Module

Jun 21, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 10.04, and happened to have an Silicom Images PCXpress card plugged in, and it kindly added the sil_sata module.This is fine for this chip set.I think that my earlier installation of Ubuntu 9.04 used Libata, which does support NCQ and also has good legacy support for the Intel Intel ICH7 chipset I have inside my Sony Vaio SZ notebook. Also, libata also support Silicon Image chipsets as far as I can tell from URL...I wish to remove the Silicom Images SATA modules and replace this with libata and then test the performance between the two device drivers.

Ubuntu Installation :: Don't Want Automount In 10.04?

May 24, 2010

I have a problem that I can not decide for 2 weeks. Here is what happened: On my laptop, installed just Windows XP. In the past, when I installed the second system, Ubuntu 9.04 or 9.10 (for dual-boot), Ubuntu asked the administrator password for access to just Windows XP partition. I mean, that just Windows XP partitions were visible, but for the entrance (mount) needed a root password.

Now, in Ubuntu 10.04, Windows XP partition mount automatically and Ubuntu does not require the root password. I do not like it very much.

Tell me please, what do the settings at the time of installation of Ubuntu for just Windows XP that the system would be asking root password for just Windows XP partitions? Is this possible? I think - yes. Because in the past the default 9.04 and 9.10 asked for a password.

PS: I must say, as I put Ubuntu and just Windows: 1. Be installed just Windows XP, giving it 20 GB space 100 GB hard drive. </span>The remaining 80 Gigabytes leave out the implications.

Ubuntu Installation :: USB Devices Won't Automount In 10.04 Lucid?

When a USB device is attached to the laptop 10.04 does not automount the device. i.e. the device, be at an external drive, memory stick or iPod does not display with the correct icon on the desktop.

However, if one looks under Places|Computer there they all are with the correct icons. The devices can then be mounted from there.

This issue seems to be related to these other posts: [URL]

This is really disappointing given that 10.04 was promoted on its iPod friendliness!

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 - No SATA Drive In Installation's Partitioner?

After that, i tried to install Ubuntu 9.10, first 64bit then x86 but in every case the setup starts, i select language / location etc and when the partitioner starts i see no hard disk drive. Same happens if i try the alternate install cd.

I must mention here that if i click on "Exit" and access Ubuntu Live CD desktopm i can go System >Administrator > Disk Utillity and GParted. In both utillities my HD shows up just fine. So what could be the problem ??? I tried starting ubuntu with pci=nommconf irqpoll -> no luckHere is the lspci output :
