[linux-lvm] performance writing to an lv with no file system


Thank you for the response.

My logical volume is striped - 7 ways.

I am writing to the lv with a simple c program I wrote.

Each write is 7*stripesize, which in this case is 28 blocks.

Any thoughts on how I can get top speeds without mounting and unmounting the volume?

> 80MB/sec raw sounds like you use a striped LV.
