    Other thing is, the 9212-4i/4e has one 4x SFF-8088 external SAS port and 4x internal SATA ports, the 9210 has a SFF-8087 intenal connector
    I'm quite intrigued now

    Great thread! Just out of curiosity, are there any raid/HBA cards that would allow select ports to be passed through to VMs? Like how the peg6i allows you to choose pairs of gig-e ports to passthrough: http://www.servethehome.com/dell-si...dapter-esxi-50-vsphere-vtd-iommu-passthrough/

    When i read things like "its two sas2008 controllers" it makes me wonder how the PCI layout looks in esxi for passthrough...

    PLX bridge chipset is pretty much industry standard. You do know most cards support SR-IOV and some do MR-IOV? No drivers for SR-IOV :(

    Just a heads up, i purchased a H222 based on this information and its apparently SAS2308 based! Not really complaining about pcie 3.0 bandwidth but you have it filed under SAS2008. Hope it works ok with ZFS!

    I know that it's an LSI 2308, but have you confirmed the PCIe3 part yourself? My understanding is that the card is 2308 but PCIe2 - like the LSI 9205.

    Yes I see the HP2xx controllers were under both SAS2008 and SAS2308 sections
    Removed the SAS2008 version
    Not sure how I managed this.

    If the 9205 works with ZFS then any other SAS2308 controller should

    HOLY CRAP!
    does the controller really make this big of a difference with hard drives?? Given that sas2008 is sata 6gbps, i would not think 4x RE 2TBs would saturate it. I imported my pool and ran a bench with the new 2308 controller and there is no way this can be right:

    I was under the assumption that the gains from the 2308 controller were marginal at best unless you were running SSDs...

    The performance difference between LSI 9200 (SAS2008) and a 9205 (SAS2308) is very small for most use cases - both are limited by the PCIe2 bus. Your results are very odd, and likely show the effects of caching more than anything else. There is no way that any four drives, much less any PCIe2 x8 card, will give you 6GB/s.

    whoops, my bad- looks like i left sync on during the slow benchmark! Here are the updated results, as expected almost no difference in performance between the two cards with a simple 4 HD setup.

    Probably worth adding the Nytros now as well as they have been officially announced and listed.
