Hi there, I thought there was a way to empirically check that the filesystem is correctly aligned to RAID stripes, but my attempts fail. I don't mean by looking at sunit and swidth from xfs_info, bec

IO may not be aligned, though allocation usually is. With a large stripe cache, the MD device waits long enough for sequential unaligned IO to fill a full stripe width and hence never needs to read t

RAID10 is just a convenient way of saying "striped mirrors" or "mirrored stripes". Fundamentally they are still using RAID1 for redundancy - a mirror of two devices. A device could be a single drive

All my testing of md RAID1 has shown write performance of one device and single threaded read performance of one device. A second, concurrent read will be directed to the second device though. Regar

No, that's wrong. I don't have the time to explain the intricacies of how XFS packs small files together, but it does. You can observe the result by unpacking a kernel tarball and looking at the layo

FWIW, for workloads that do random, small IO, XFS works best when you _turn off_ aligned allocation and just let it spray the IO at the disks. This works best if you are using RAID 0/1/10. All the nu

That's interesting to read. Why would sunit/swidth be slower then? I'd thought that XFS then would know one stripe is 64k and I have 8 disks so it should try to pack 8*64=512kb in one junk on disk, a
