Subject:   Multiple choices for RAID-0, best performance?
Message-ID:  <!~!UENERkVCMDkAAQACAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABgAAAAAAAAA0VcX9IoJqUaXPS8MjT1PdsKAAAAQAAAAZeik8C8GiESlW3j+DGVyngEAAAAA@telia.com>

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).
