I also run the bechmarks with the gnop class invoked. It seems that the 'gnop
-f nnn' option doesn't work, so that I couldn't observe any significant
performance differences. I own several really nice broken IBM SCSI disks, but
they are broken in such a way, that the mirrors break immediately after
hitting the damaged areas. Maybe it's the better solution to run smartd from
ports/smartctl and replace flaky disks asap.
