Re: vn(4) performance on 4.11 versus md(4) on 5.4



Hi Glenn,

	Have already fixed that problem?
	Your tests were on the same hardware?
	I´ve tested two of my boxes one with, FBSD 4.9 and another with
the latest cvs 5.4.
	They´re not the same hardware but the performance with md drive
was MUCH faster with 5.4.

	TEsted with 'dd':
	4.9:
dd if=/dev/zero of=TESTE count=1000 bs=64k
1000+0 records in
1000+0 records out
65536000 bytes transferred in 1.005721 secs (65163195 bytes/sec)

	5.4:
dd if=/dev/zero of=TESTE count=1000 bs=64k
1000+0 records in
1000+0 records out
65536000 bytes transferred in 0.241217 secs (271688824 bytes/sec)
