it doesn't need a raid for us

So is there any backup for the forum? I sure hope so, I'd hate to see all this information lost due to a crappy hard drive. I run a 500GB RAID 5 in my home computer. That's not expensive to set up, but then again, I probably should become a paying member before saying things like that. If you want a good bandwidth test, just tell everyone to open up a command window (Windows, but linux should be very similar) and run this:

ping www.miataturbo.net -t -l 65500

I'm guessing your ISP will stop the ping so we won't get a response, but it should slow things down. Hell, have everyone run 50 or so processes, that should be a good test .

SO you run a RAID 5? With no parity drive? So if two of drives fail you lose your data? Welcome to just multiplying your risk by 5.

I think the ultimate solution would be a RAID 6, but I spent that money on the miata instead of an extra drive and an adaptec controller card. The built in RAID controller on my motherboard does not allow for a parity drive as far as I know.
if backup is your goal a mirror would be smarter..

don't be telling people to do a weak *** DOS attack on my server. That isn't the ******* point.

Ah Yup! What he said! That'd be your basic Raid Back-up plan.

Yeah, you're right. The RAID works good enough for me at the moment, though.
