    Copy and paste!

    Well, I used to use FTP to test the throughputs.

    I can read at 108MB/s from my iscsi SAN, but only with an artificial test or 128k blocks and 100% read.

    It has more real world tests on it though and it's good for testing peak performance is as expected. For example writing to 4k cluster ntfs peaks at 20MB/s while 32k peaks are around 80MB/s on my box.
