A number of times, questions have popped up on this list about
building really large arrays of IDE disks. Does anybody know if
there's a list dedicated to that? If not, does anybody have
suggestions as to the best way to get something like that set
I ask because I haven't really found an appropriate forum for
it; the range of issues that come up (filesystems, hardware,
RAID) cut across so many boundaries that it's difficult to keep
from going wildly offtopic no matter which list(s) one is on.
And most of the people building these arrays are venturing into
the unknown; it'd be handy to have a place to swap experience
about hardware weirdnesses and filesystem quirks and performance
notes, to inform others about successful configurations and
Anybody else think there might be enough interest to make
something like this a go?
