With the recent addition of a geom-enabled vinum, and the discussed (but not yet functional?) geom stripe module, we now have 4 different choices for software RAID-0 on ATA devices (the other two are regular vinum and ataraid).
I'm currently using a mix of vinum and ataraid on one of my servers, but I haven't been in a position to do any proper performance measurements yet (it's a production server). Are there any obvious performance differences between the different ways of doing RAID-0? Any difference in resource usage? Also, will the RAID-0 performance of ataraid be affected a lot depending on what controller is used? For example would there be any performance difference (transfer speed and/or system resource usage) between ataraid on a HPT374-based card (such as the Highpoint RocketRAID 454) and one of the new Promise cards (which we have really good drivers for afaik).
