Netware 6.5SP7, DAS Raid 5, NSS, 1 year old. Gb NIC.

Performace is always very dependant on server hardware, client hardware and network.

Sometimes are not absolutely sure people do not have data hidden on there PC so we make backup's of workstations before putting a new image on them.

a few day's ago, we needed to backup 4 workstations to the server. This was slow. At the server I noticed a throughput of only 4Mb/sec to the disk. The server became very unresponsive.

I should think this throughput is rather low. There is a lot you can find on tuning, but I can't find any rough numbers on what should be achievable.

Would some members here be willing to share there performance figures and how the achieved this (hardware, configuration).
