    Hello, Thanks for the article. It did help in bring up to speed on the basic. Question. 1.) Can we strip across disk with the different size. I have 20 1TB disk 4 7TB disk. I want o create 32TB filesystem. I improve prerformamances.. I wanted to strip. 2.) How to hand disk failure?

    It is very useful, thanks. I have a question:
    if I define the strip to 1, so does this mean I can map LV to a specific physical drive? I think it is useful, for example, I want to snapshot LV located in a separated physical drive. By defining the strip to 1, I can do it, can’t I.

    Best Regards

    Interesting article, just a few questions,

    is this the same as RAID0, I mean as far as performance goes ?

    Would this be a good idea to put the /home partition on to increase performance ?
