Marco Peereboom (marco@) has committed RAID0 support to softraid(4). This means that softraid is now capable of doing RAID0 and RAID1. As always when a new feature is committed it is greatly appreciated if users test the code. One way of doing so is to use the tool iogen which is available through ports or packages.
So please update your system to current and help test RAID0.
Marco has published a todo-list for softraid in order to emphasize on the yet missing features. This way you have the possibility to help develop missing features.
The following is an example of what a large RAID0 array can look like:sd19 at scsibus5 targ 0 lun 0:
