Hi Merlin,

Here is the bonnie++ and new pgbench result with high transaction numbers.


$ pgbench -i -s 30 -U pgsql pgbench
$ pbench -c 100 -t 1000 -U pgsql -d pgbench

transaction type: TPC-B (sort of)
scaling factor: 30
number of clients: 100
number of transactions per client: 1000
number of transactions actually processed: 100000/100000
tps = 45.145051 (including connections establishing)
tps = 45.162367 (excluding connections establishing)

When I compare my  bonnie++ result with the one at
http://www.westnet.com/~gsmith/content/postgresql/pg-disktesting.htm,
It seems that there is something wrong with the disks!?
