As asked by the hosting company I shut down and test in rescue mode. I
also tested with proxmox running but with all VMs shut down (my tests
were done with all VMs running).

There is an increase in speed reads but I find that FSYNCs are still low
and reads differ too much (from 100 MB/s to 140 MB/s):

root at myserver:~# hdparm -tT /dev/sda

/dev/sda:
Timing cached reads: 16160 MB in 2.00 seconds = 8087.23 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 434 MB in 3.00 seconds = 144.60 MB/sec
root at myserver:~# hdparm -tT /dev/sdb

/dev/sdb:
Timing cached reads: 16492 MB in 2.00 seconds = 8253.77 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 456 MB in 3.01 seconds = 151.44 MB/sec

Are these numbers normal for a SATA 7.200 RPM Software RAID with ext4?

What numbers can I expect with SSD?

Thanks!

Miguel
