Being an old fart, I still think in terms of what the drive characteristics are (bytes/sector and sectors/track) and would think that a stripe size that matches the number of bytes per track would be the ideal stripe size. I have two WD1002FAEX drives (1 TB). I can’t seem to find that info anywhere. Is that kind of thinking meaningless now? It would seem that setting the stripe size so that the heads don’t have to move to read/write a block of data would provide the best performance.
I would also think that a cluster size that is a multiple of the stripe size would also improve performance.
Some education please.
