Disk I/O Tuning

Chapter 3:

Optimizing ATA Performance

In Windows 2000 and Linux, you should be sure the latest firmware for your controller has been downloaded and flashed onto your controller chips.  If you have a drive card, make sure it is the latest technology.

ATA Tuning In Windows

Other than getting the best drivers, the best interface cards and the fastest disks, there isn't much else in Windows to be done at the interface level.  However, there are a few things to improve EIDE performance:

  • Enable DMA for the operating system, for Windows 2000 this is done by:

1.      Right click on My Computer and choose Manage

2.      Click on Device Manager

3.      Click on the (+) sign next to IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers

4.      Double click on the controller you want to change/check

5.      Click on Advanced Settings

6.      Select the drop-down menu for Transfer Mode and make sure DMA if available is selected
