hi all,

i'm setting up a new server and i basically have 4 disks (+2 for back-up
storage), easiest would be to go for the good old raid5 and suffer the
performance loss, but i have some time left to do some benchmarking and
i want to give raid10 a try.

i don't seem to be able to find much resources on google about setting
up raid 10 in debian (anybody has some experience???) and i also came
accross the idea of raid1 with lvm setup..is this an option?

just wandering if somebody has some thoughts and pointers

There is a general Linux RAID Howto and FAQ at http://linux-raid.osdl.org/

Especially there is a howto on setting up a system with raid all the way at http://linux-raid.osdl.org/index.php/Preventing_against_a_failing_disk

There is somthing on performance of the various tyoes of Linux raid at
http://linux-raid.osdl.org/index.php/Performance . This is information made by the Linux-raid kernel group and reflects quite recent information. Many other sites contain info that is rather old.

a bit late reply, but nevertheless useful information. i have set up my raid10 by know and have done it as described in the link below. To be honest this is the first time i see the f2 and 02 options for raid10, does anybody know more bedtime reading on that?
