I've built a GEOM mirror on a single slice of a single disk and am about
to insert the second disk. Of the partitions in the mirror, I made only
a few of them gjournal'd. I've seen it recommended that one disable
autosynchronization for the mirror if using journaled filesystems.
1. Is that recommendation a must or a nice-to-have? What are the actual
consequences of not taking that advice?
2. In a case like mine, the non-journaled partitions need
autosychronization enabled to benefit from being mirrored, right?
3. Exactly how would I disable autosynchronization for the journaled
partitions in the mirror, but not for the rest?
