Re: not yet perfect, but...

And right now, the defragmentation seems to increase the missed rate, but I
take it that that's due to the large amount of shifting data around.

The HDDs are SATA, btw, running at 150 Mbits/s (due to limitations of the
controller) . 32 MByte cache each.

Not sure whether the controller speed would make a lot of difference, Ulrich.

I assume you have installed one of the suggested defrag programs. Yes, during an initial pass you might see a higher lost packet rate, the real test is later, of course. Did the programs report a highly fragmented disk?
