    EXT4 optimization (Journal, checksum, QEMU, LVM, MDADM)

    I've decide to use mdadm RAID1(root) and RAID5(data) on my servers and my final choice of filesystem was EXT4 for both (did consider btrfs, XFS and ZFS, but looking at all pros/cons I ended up with EXT4). I've started wondering about a few things in regards to performance optimizing: Twice...

    Raid5 grow time

    Hi, I have a Rackmount with a LSI-9011-8i. Now I have 2x8TB drives (one of these full) and I'm planning to buy another 4 of these drives (WD80EFAX) to build a RAID-5 with mdadm. (Now the 2 drives are NOT in RAID) If I create a RAID-5 with the new 4x8TB drives, how long will it take to grow, if I...

    FreeBSD/FreeNAS vs OmniOS/Napp-it write speeds when used as ESXi NFS VM datastore?

    Hey, so I've done a couple all-in-one ESXi boxes with either FreeNAS or FreeBSD with ZFS I pass to ESXi as NFS datastores. Tried to run VMs but benchmarks exposed gawd-awful write speeds, totally unusable. Just ended up using them for ISO storage and (slow) backups, content libraries, etc...

    Bad mdraid0 performance

    I'm wondering why i get such low numbers from my mdraid0 RAID setup. I've setup 2 mdraid0 of 2x SSD partitions and both perform like a single SSD when it comes to IOPS, but better with seq. read. Here are some numbers: First RAID0 of 2x Intel S3700 400GB, using only 100GiB partitions for...
