Somewhat off topic, but how are you generating 10,000 IOPS by carving a
16TB LUN/volume from 12 x 2TB SATA disk spindles? Such drives aren't
even capable of 200 seeks per second. Even if they were you'd top out
at less than 2,500 IOPS (random). 16TB/12=1.33 TB per disk. No such
capacity disk exists. So I assume you're using 12 x 2TB disks and
slicing/dicing out 16TB. What am I missing Dave?
