Still I would argue that if you do not use a write size larger than what
you have as real memory, that buffering in real memory is going to play
Other than that I find 50Mb/s is IMHO reasonable high value for a RAID5
in writting. But it would require substantial more organised testing. DD
is nothing more than a very crude indication of what to expect in real life.
