Depends on how fast one's disks are. 30MB/sec is about "normal" these
days for real world disk thruput.
Haven't fiddled much with configurations but I have a pair of Seagate
SATA-300 on SATA-150 interface 300 GB drives striped with gvinum that
currently peak at about 60 MB/sec, paired. Individually about 45 MB/sec.
Have older Hitachi 160's that were faster on FreeBSD under vinum than
the Seagates under gvinum. Currently mounted, striped, on Mac Pro, and
will sustain 90+ MB/sec peaking at almost 100.
Between those two filesystems I can usually ftp at over 50 MB/sec.
Limited by disk bandwidth.
