iSCSI Enterprise Maximum Response Time Summary

 

Here we see the maximum response time for each of the standard workloads. Both the Red 6TB and Red Pro 4TB arrays suffer from abnormally high maximum response times in some of the tests. After testing with the original Red 1TB drives in RAID 5, we confirmed this was a WD issue that has grown into a larger issue with the new Red 6TB.
