I am right now talking to someone on postgresql irc who is measuring
15k iops from x25-e and no data loss following power plug test. I am
becoming increasingly suspicious that peter's results are not
representative: given that 90% of bonnie++ seeks are read only, the
math doesn't add up, and they contradict broadly published tests on
the internet. Has anybody independently verified the results?
