Re: High performance random-access disk operations (Raidframe?)

I've indeed seen "RAID 10" used for such circumstances (that is, a RAID

Well, there are a lot of issues here. (1) RAID 1+0 requires 4 disks (right?). Not necessarily a problem, but worth noting. (2) I don't actually care about the data, so the cost of the "RAID 1" part is a waste. (3) As it turns out, the filesystems I was originally looking at combining *aren't* t he same size, which is unsupported by RAIDframe anyway.

  So, I'm working with ccd(4) at the moment.  We'll see how that works.
