I've seen that people repport 100 MB/s (sustained I hope) with
as few as 8 disks. Would XFS scale to > 1GB/s sustained and
is it known what could be the largest integrated deviation from
that streaming speed (to get the feeling for the size of buffer needed
to pick up the slack). Also, would I get this performance over
The application, as it is, allready uses several channels to get a
combined 1GB/s performance (roughly 10 channels) so esoteric
hardware is quite feasible in this case.
I know that we are talking about 100 disks here and maybe the
reliability of that system may not to high but so far I'm just
exploring the possibilities of alternative implementations.
