I just added a 320-gig Western Digital external hard disk drive to my amd64 RELENG_6 system (as /dev/da0). The OEM docs recommend connecting both the USB *and* the firewire cables for optimal performance, which I've done.
What I'm wondering is: how does FreeBSD deal with such a setup? Does it favor one connection over the other, or does it actually use both? It seems I'm getting firewire throughput on the device (at bootup dmesg reports 50 MB/s transfer rate, rather than the slower 12 MB/s USB rate). The device is working just fine, but I'm just curious about this, if anyone has any clues. Thanks! -- Conrad J.
