Can someone please explain why such a setup makes sense?
As far as I can tell, the purpose of gmirror is to provide
redundancy in the case of drive failure. I.e. if one
drive fails, the system keeps running happily instead of
But if only part of the disk is mirrored, then the system
will still crash if one drive fails. So what is the point
of using gmirror, if not on whole disks?
