Possibly also turn write caching on if it is off.
OK, thanks Daniel. Look like good clues. I'm eager to try them out.
Do you think these things will improve things quite noticably?
I can't test it just now as I'm rsyncing some 600mb of mail and news
across from my desktop. (Leaving town in the morning) and that will
take a while. But looking at the man pages its hard to get an idea
how much of improvement this might make.
Just softupdates will increase the speed of metadata heavy operations (eg file
deletion) a lot.
Also make sure you are comparing apples with apples.. I note you said the linux
box was a different spec - that doesn't make for informative comparisons.
