Re: thumbs up or down on ext3 with md?



Thumbs up on ext3 but I am running with the latest raid version on Linx
2.4.8.
I'm using it on 3 different systems now on RAID1 and RAID5.  I/O is a little
slower but the recovery time from a crash is a LOT less so it's worth it to
me (and I'm a performance freak).

I know you can "upgrade" your raid (i.e "mkraid --upgrade) but I'm not sure
about "upgrading" to persistent superblocks.
