We have recently bought:
2x Quad Core Xeon X5570
64GB RAM DDR3 ECC
4x Cheetah 15K.7 300GB 6 Gb/s SAS 2.0
I have set this config up in RAID1+0.
We will be running a MySQL Enterprise Database on here, for RADIUS purposes.
I am wondering what the best RAID controller setup would be for this purpose.
I have the option to set the following options:
: 8-1024KB (default 64k)
: Normal / Ahead
: Write through / Write back
: Normal / Cached
: Enabled / Disabled
: On / Off
Patrol Read Ahead
: (default 30)
: None / 128M-way / 1GB-way
I am especially interested in information about the strip-size
but all other recommendations are also very welcome!
