Re: raidframe performance question

As several people pointed out, the poor drive performance was a direct result
of using the block device vs raw device. With the raw device I have both
drives simultaneously dd'ing at nearly 100M _each_. Erasure is nearly
finished now, and I'll be trying to reassemble the raidset tomorrow morning.
I would be curious to know what the write performance is writing to
/dev/rwd4e when that partition starts at 63. If the drive does actually
have 4K physical sectors and emulates 512 byte sectors, then the writes
will be misaligned and will likely have poorer performance.
