I use lvm in a mainframe environment, with small ECKD disks (maximum model
54, aprox. 45 GB). So to create a big volume a I need a lot of disks. I'm
going to create one with 35 physical volumes. I have doubts about striping,
particularly deciding the number of stripes in such case (35 PVs in one
storage array rank -yeah, not good-), and the drawbacks in administration
tasks ( growing and limitations adding pvs to a stripped volume).
The use of striping is recommended because of performance improvement:
Thanks for your suggestions
