Dear all,

Because I’m currently reconstructing all my GlusterFS volumes, I just noticed that all of my RAID virtual drives did not necessarily have the same stripe size and I wonder whether it would be better to reconstruct/rebuild these virtual drives with the same stripe size ... What do you recommend ?

Actually, 2 virtual drives of 4 have a stripe size set to 64KB (Dell Perc H8xx RAID controller default settings) and the 2 left are set to 256KB (LSI MegaRAID 9286-8e default settings). With iozone tests, i notice Dell Perc VD have better results than LSI ones. (~1.3-4GBs vs ~1.2GBs) and I wonder if these parameters are not in cause...

It’s very urgent for me to know what i have to do because I need to reconstruct and set all my volumes and back transfert roughly 40TBs in distributed and replicated volumes as quickly as possible…

Thanks by advance,
