Back to a post a few days ago. After a run-in with the dreaded time/date bug, I have some good results to report on the Adaptec 39160. We are getting decent throughput of 134.2 combined read and 153.2 combined write. RT tested at 72.4 read and 67.5 write. The adaptec drivers were vintage december 2002.
Seems pretty decent. The next week or so will tell if there are any other hiccups, but so far so good.
The drive array is a Rorke MAXarray with 8x36 split bus.
