I did some tests a few months ago with bonnie++.. might offer some
encouragement (please don't post this to slashdot.. ;)


There's a lot of data there, but if you look at the LVM stuff, you might
notice that the concurrent performance (having 3 processes hammering the
disks in different places instead of just one) was quite good when
compared to flat out RAID5. I'll pay 5% performance for manageability
any day. :-D
