I've already tested RAID-10 with MD as well as letting LVM do the
striping. This is total equal: There are too many IO processes on all
spindles for good performance. All r/w-heads in RAID-10 have to be
repositioned over and over again.
Even in random IO this only reads from a single spindle per RAID-1 array.
Without striping MD RAID-1 has a good read balancing algorithm. With
that I can read from both spindles in the RAID-1 array simultaneously.

Thanks, I'll look at that.
