Re: [linux-lvm] Does a striped LV honor the order of specified PVs

This is situation where the number of LUNS - spindles - are many with the

To avoid hotspots - the idea is to control the order in which the LUNs are
written to by the LVs. It would appear the specifying the underlying PV -
LUN - order would achieve this goal. Is that correct ? Is there any value
to going through that trouble ? any experiences ?

Well striping in general is a "good thing" for performance it's just a matter
of how you want to implement it. Yes, LVM can create striped volumes, you could
also create a software RAID array [1] to act as your physical volume and
achieve the same goal. There's copious material available on the topic of RAID


1. or buy a HW RAID, or a SAN.
