Can I use two way stripe metadevice for my swap/dump device? I am hoping after this system performance would be increased a bit.
Please let me know if this is the recommended practice. Thanks!

During installation you would have chosen a one partition / slice for swap. I am not sure if it ok to do what you want, since if there is a crash dump and system wants to dump it, I am not sure if it works on a striped device.
