Subject: RE: RAID 6 rebuild time - can I slash it?

To jump into this discussion - we had several performance issues using RAID6 (in different combinations), so we went back to recommend (and use on our boxes) RAID5+hotspare.

With everything I read about Raid6 performance, not good, especially in the CEC, that could be disastrous from a performance point of view.
