For the benchmarks I did just use unstoppable copier (gives correct transfer rates) to see how the speed was in real life transfers.
In my home network I have implemented the lvm pool now, the wife loves her series so another week without them would result in problems
But I work for a MS developer company as system admin so in a week or 2 I will review the Server 2012RC for my boss. If you want we can compare the test results, if possible in a different or similar setup.
Most of my test set-ups at work are a Xeon 3*** with +/- 4 or 6GB DDR3, a RAID1 with 10k SAS drives for OS and 4 disks for data (will be used for storage poles in this case).
And a little tut for LVM in webmin http://www.havethekn...ion-drives.html
PS: havetheknowhow.com has a few good howto's for Linux servers. And if you need extra info just check my blog http://blog.anvarit.com or send my a message.
If you didn't mind I'd enjoy seeing some of your test results -- would you post or publish to the forums?
