Seems I was thumbing through a recent backissue and it made claim that the pci raid card was maxed out at three drives.
Indicating performance suffered upon adding the fourth drive, because the pci port was too small to handle the data capabilities of all four at once.
If correct, since I have the pci raid card (Fastrax tx) mentioned, with four drives in 0+1, I was wondering, how does one array three drives?
Is it possible to stripe across three drives?
If I recall correctly, the article you are talking about had all the drives as raid 0. You have 2 drives as raid 0, and 2 drives as raid 1, so I dont believe you are bottle necked like they were in the article moving from 3 to 4 drives.
