[linux-lvm] Parallel mirroring



Hello.

I have succesfully configured Mirroring between 2 disks in linux for 2
logical volumes, and on other without mirroring.
But i can not find any evidence showing that it is reading in parallel
scheduler mode.
I have read HP docs about HP-UX, but it talks about command line
options which arent in the linux side.

The "-d p" in HP-UX would be what i need now for linux. Also lvdisplay
doesnt show anything about it, more than the number of mirrors.


This are my tests:

sda1 = /boot in disk 1, no lvm
sdb1 = /boot in disk 2, no lvm
data/data = lvm without mirroring
data/root = lvm with mirroring


linux-8mmd:~ # hdparm -t /dev/sda1
/dev/sda1:
 Timing buffered disk reads:  262 MB in  3.02 seconds =  86.83 MB/sec

linux-8mmd:~ # hdparm -t /dev/sdb1
/dev/sdb1:
 Timing buffered disk reads:  174 MB in  3.03 seconds =  57.36 MB/sec

linux-8mmd:~ # hdparm -t /dev/data/data
/dev/data/data:
 Timing buffered disk reads:  272 MB in  3.02 seconds =  90.02 MB/sec

linux-8mmd:~ # hdparm -t /dev/data/root
/dev/data/root:
 Timing buffered disk reads:  278 MB in  3.02 seconds =  92.16 MB/sec



As you can see, the read speed are mostly the same. This could mean a
secuenced scheduler.

And this is my system setup:

  Library version: 1.02.27 (2008-06-25)
