I believe 1/0 or 1+0 is aka RAID-10. CX300 doesn't support 0+1.
So far i am aware of two things, the cache page size is 8KB (can be increased or
decreased), and the stripe element size of 128 sectors default.

I expect you mean RAID 1/0 or 1+0 since the CX300 didn't support RAID 10 last
time I looked.
Whether you are using a SAN or not, you should consider putting the WAL files
(pg_xlog folder) on
seperate diskes from the DB. Since the log files are mostly written to, not
read from you could
just use RAID 1.
It's a pity pg doesn't have a way to use a cluster of servers to get the most
out of your
I read a comment earlier about setting block sizes to 8k to math pg's block
size. Seems to make
sense, you should check it out.
