I completely disagree with your notion that RAID 5 isn't acceptable. I routinely get 110MB/sec reads and 60MB/sec writes. Copying a file on the same volume is usually in the 45MB/sec range. You don't really say what your hardware is, but I'm doing this with (4) SATA drives and 256MB of RAM cache. Small burst writes to the cache are 290MB/sec. I've recorded (2) SD and (2) HD simultaneously while watching one of those HD streams. Not a single stutter. Might want to check out the LVM_on_RAID page if you ever head back to RAID 5. --DirkGecko 16:30, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
