RE: IDE-Benchmarks


The theoretical maximum IDE performance with ETRAX 100LX is 16.67 MB/s.
With the settings used by the IDE driver in Linux 2.4 you can get
~12 MB/s (I could rant for a while about the reason for that but it
is just boring stuff). 

The SCSI interface is much faster (max 40 MB/s with wide scsi) but
SCSI has lost its popularity (and no effort has been made to port
the Linux 2.0 SCSI driver to 2.4).

I recall measuring something like 7 MB/s with dd, and slightly relaxed bus timings. Of course a filesystem slows things down a bit. Generally it seems to work just fine.

If the Etrax network interface is fast enough for you, IDE should fall in the same class.
