Performance testing RAID
So after I setup the big RAID I ran some tests on the storage. Here are some commands, make sure you have at least 17GB space available for testing this. Once you run the command look at the time and throughput.
dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/<mount point>/testfile bs=4194304 count=4096
dd of=/dev/null if=/mnt/<mount point>/testfile bs=4194304 count=4096
