Dear Listmates,

Is it possible to configure vinum for balancing the mileage between two and three non-volatile storage devices of a different size

I have read the manual thoroughly and noticed that the are certain restrictions applied to the hard drive sizes in the proposed RAID5 data handling implementation

A fact of use of the plexes as structural entinties make me wonder why would the size of an actual hard drive make a difference to the actual i/o layer when plexes are even and the subdisks sizes are even why not just i/o consequently

Can someone please provide me with a working example of a RAID5 configuration
