RAID for large disks
I have a RAID controller with 256MB of on board cache and its connected to 12 500GB SATA disks. I am planning to create 2 RAID groups (6 disks each), but I don't know what is the optimal stripe size should be.
Also, once I stripe on the RAID controller I am planning to use LVM. Is striping a good idea? What should I consider for the filesystem?
