OOC - out of coffee?
The realtime (data) volume is for fast access streaming data. The
metadata would be on raid 5 storage to minimize the chance of losing it
or corruption. The bitmap of the realtime volume and any metadata from
that volume would be located on the raid volume. Does that make sense?
would it be a major modification to to the code to do that.
You may be able to achieve what you want with the realtime subvolume,
and if so, no, its not a major modification at all. ;)
I have found very little documentation on the realtime volume.
Thanks for responding,
