HD Tune is a Hard Disk utility which has the following functions:
Benchmark: measures the performance
Info: shows detailed information
Health: checks the health status by using SMART
Error Scan: scans the surface for errors
HD Tune Pro gives us accurate read, write and access time results and for the last couple of years has been gaining popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must have application for storage device testing.
Since we tested the RocketRAID 2310 in every possible array type from a single drive to 4 drives in RAID 10, there is a lot of information to look over.
In nearly all of the tests we encountered a reverse blip on the STR test. This is where the performance dropped by a significant margin for a very small portion of the test, usually just a single sector across the array. When looking at the graphs the information is presented as a single spike. Because of this it is important to base our results off of the Average score and not the minimum.
In the results we see that RAID 0 with 4 drives is the fastest configuration, just as it should be. The results for 4D R0 were quite low compared to what we are used to seeing. The RAID 5 read performance is right around where it should be. Let's see what happens in the write test.
The HighPoint RocketRAID 2310 doesn't have any cache and this is common with low cost controllers. The same is true with on board RAID found on your desktop motherboard. Because of this RAID 5 write performance is usually quite low. Here we see horrid RAID 5 performance from the 2310. RAID 10 looks fairly good for a low cost controller; the numbers are very close to the 2 drive RAID 0 performance which is where they should be.
