Hi Everybody!

I've got a spare machine which is 2xXEON 3.2GHz, 4Gb RAM
14x140Gb SCSI 10k (LSI MegaRaid 320U). It is going into production in 3-5months.
I do have free time to run tests on this machine, and I could test different stripe sizes
if somebody prepares a test script and data for that.

I could also test different RAID modes 0,1,5 and 10 for this script.

I guess the community needs these results.
