Failure to do so can result in data loss. A daemon detecting status changes and reporting to syslog as SNMP traps is packaged as cpqarrayd. If a single drive fails, a RAID 3 array continues to operate in degraded mode. In RAID1 all the data is essentially doubled across two or more disks. I agree with you on 2. RAID 5 breaks up data into smaller blocks, calculates parity by performing an exclusive-or on the blocks, and then writes the blocks of data and parity to each drive in the array.

The hard drives are physically fine.

All settings at defaults. Without having done these tests I doubt I would be able to tell the difference between the set negaraid as they are.

At the end of aacraid section is the old information on tools available on Dell website, which may be useful for older distributions and controllers. RAID 1 provides liux data redundancy, but at the cost of doubling the required data storage capacity.

Theres a few tricks I’ve found that help. However this turned out not to be the case. I know that if you get the same motherboard, or even a RAID card by the same manufacturer as the RAID chip on your motherboard, there is a good chance you’ll get your array up again. The parity data created during the exclusive-or is then written to the last drive in the array.

Having a problem logging in? At least you were able to set them up using the jumper. I hope that they work out well for you. Command-line utilities are packaged for Debian as dpt-i2o-raidutils. New tests will be appended to this post.

I guess this step is more crucial for higher levels of RAID. They have, amongst others, an ‘archttp’ module which enables megraid web interface! Write performance should be around that of a single rpm drive or maybe a little slower because the data has to go to two disks.

It’s these ‘epic fixes’ I got lying around here that are troublesome. All times are GMT I do have a question though: The parity data created during the exclusive-or is then written to the last drive in each RAID 3 array.

Comment 6 Dave Jones The only thing I can think of is that the access time will be slower since they are RPM instead ofbut that really shouldn’t be a huge difference since they are going to be run as PATA drives. Details about individual drivers 3w-xxxx Hardware using this driver: They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own. I’ve got mine set to sync the files on the array with an external drive every hour.

Attachments Terms of Use Add an attachment proposed patch, testcase, etc. I start configuration of the drives by selecting them with my arrow keys and hitting space to toggle them as part of the array On 1, I was not aware of the WD ‘green power’ hard drives. After that it worked! You should have received the following: Outside of that, of course. But still it’s “only” a good chance it will still work and RAID is all about eliminating the chance you loose what you really don’t want to loose disregarding RAID 0 here.

Your name or email address: By the time I get to the partitioning tool I’m reminded why I migrated to Debian in the first place. As of today I have all the parts necessary to complete the project. Jul 4, 9.
