Multiple choices for RAID-0, best performance?

2004-06-22 Thread Daniel Eriksson
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).

should run a vinum start backup.p0.s3. I'm not sure if this will rebuild all the data automatically (it does for RAID-1 arrays), but if it doesn't then I guess you also need to run a vinum rebuildparity backup.p0. /Daniel Eriksson ___ [EMAIL PROTECTED

not really clearing the drive you are aiming for, it is to write to every sector. If you have a failed sector (which you do), writing to it will force the drive firmware to remap the sector. As far as I know, most drives will not remap an unreadable sector until it is written to. /Daniel Eriksson
