I tried gvinum RAID-5 with a 5-Stable around the time when 5.1 or 5.2
was released (afair) and back then it basically sucked big time. Raid
worked as long as nothing failed, but reconstructing a drive was

Now I will have to upgrade hardware soon, which means I could switch
from NetBSD (and Raidframe) to FreeBSD (with gvinum) again. I would
like to because NetBSD seems to have some kind of memory leak in
connection with Samba and large or many files, but I'd rather have a
somewhat unstable Samba than an unstable Raid, so what's the state of
P.S.: I've tried google but have not come up with anything useful
short of reading the actual code, which is way over my level.
