[linux-lvm] lvm2 on raid5 speed, not so bad



Just to share some information...

Here is a "bonnie -s 1024" on a P4 2.4 with 512MB RAM. The RAID5 is my weirdo way of doing multiple RAID5 devices so that I can move things around. All 4 RAID5 meta devices are on the same 5 disks... 300GB SATA and (4) 200GB PATA drives.

Forgot to mention that the RAID5 devices are 1024k "chunk-size". Filesystem is reiserfs.
