Hi Diego,

The reason I use RAID5 because I don't want to waste too much space on 
redundancy whilst taking the advantage of read. Over 99% of disk access are 
expected to be reading. 

I could split to 2xRAID5 but I will have difficulty with file management later. 
Furthermore, the system would use 2 disks for parity. I don't want to lose too 
much space. [EMAIL PROTECTED] SCSI disks are still very expensive. :(

do you check gstat?

If the patch dont works, maybe yoy may try to split the raid (2 raid
5) or better use a raid 10. The raid 5 isnt a top performance raid.
