Re: [linux-lvm] software raid or lvm?



hi,
i'm sorry that i wasn't more clear. i used to have raid0 with the siimage binary driver, but that is only for 2.4 kernels. so i've to use software raid and i didn't find the way how to put lvm on top of software raid. or how can i do it?
however, in suse admin guide is written about lvm: 'several hard disks can be used with improved performance in the raid0 (striping) mode.' any idea? can i use lvm as raid0? course, the best is raid and lvm on top, but if i can use only lvm, how fast it would be? can i check the speed?
thank you
philip

what would be better/faster?


Well, what are you trying to do?  If you want redundancy, go with RAID.
If you want volume management, go with LVM.  I'd say you should do both
(RAID the disks then use LVM on top), but without more data there is no
answer for "better/faster".
