HPE P440 4GB RAID 6 Full Duplication Size


Recommended Posts

Hi, good afternoon.


I'm going to create a RAID 6 with this controller and four 4 TB HGST Ultrastar disks, in a HPE ML110 G9 server.


From the SSA there is a guide of the instructions to follow when creating the different types of RAID. The guide indicates that for RAID 5 and 6 it recommends smaller band sizes.

When you are about to create the RAID, this last screen appears in which you indicate which size you want to choose, but I don't know which one would be optimal for the purpose I am looking for.

This RAID 6 will only hold data of a fairly small size, and will not have any operating system installed. Most files will be between 2 and 4 MB in size.


What is the mirroring size I should choose? This mirroring can be changed later when there is data on the system, but I prefer to leave it now in the most optimal mode, because later I also could not check if one size is faster than another when reading and writing. Thank you.

Any specific reason you are going down the RAID front?

You only have to store one database.
