Subjectstriping (RAID0) performance ?
Hi folks,

I'm testing RAID0 performance of my linux box and I'm not really
impressed. I seem to get something around 10 MB/s towards a 2 aic7xxx
controllers, 4 disks setup.
some simple benchmark results are available at:
<A HREF="http://apemaia.roma1.infn.it/~rossetti/testraid3.txt">
Could someone explain to me why aren't they so exciting ?

It seems that the md driver is only remapping sectors, not using any
I/O overlapping. this way the performance gain is marginal.
Am I wrong ?
