yes, 128 MB is pretty pretty small.

Maybe the HP Smart Array P800 controller would be a better choice(if you
need an hp product).

BTW how many harddisks are you using ? Wich RAID ? I am using ext3 as a
filesystem (but you have to use the new linux kernels).
Try to use another filesystem then ext2.

128 Meg is a pretty small cache for a modern RAID controller. I
wonder if this one is just a dog performer.

Have you looked at things like the Areca or Escalade with 1g or more
cache on them?
