Actually, I think this is a case of crossed wires. This issue was reported a while back on a news site for the X25-M G2. Somebody pointed out that these devices have 8GB of cache, which is exactly the dataset size they use for the iops figures.
The X25-E datasheet however states that while write cache is enabled, the iops figures are over the entire drive. And looking at the X25-M G2 datasheet again, it states that the measurements are over 8GB of range, but these come with 32MB of cache, so I think that was also a false alarm. -- This message posted from opensolaris.org _______________________________________________ zfs-discuss mailing list email@example.com http://mail.opensolaris.org/mailman/listinfo/zfs-discuss
