I have two disks on primary controller, PATA, master+slave by jumper.
I'm in the process of copying 10GB of opensuse goodness from hdb to a samba share on another machine via konqueror's url smb://servername/sharename/dir
Konq has two tabs, local tree and smb tree, and I just did a right click copy and paste.
What is strange, I noticed that gkrellm was showing 15MB/sec throughput on both hdb and 12MB/sec on hda (both drives on original machine).
If this is true, then its a bizarre waste of power, resources, time etc I mean, does the data seriously have to go from hdb to hda then to the remote server, that seems very odd.
Is this real? How can I check that this is truly happening and its not some weird little bug in gkrellm?
If its real, does anyone know if its supposed to be like that or could it be:
- Hardware bug (mobo's disk controller being weird)
- KDE bug
- samba bug
- kernel bug
Thanks for any suggestions.
