Do you have any stats on that ? Like for instance,
how much faster, how do you go about stripping the
disks ?

I am using Harvest Cache V2 and I am using a DEC 4100
here with 3 channel RAID card. I am trying to test
the performance without stripping.

Our production machine here is also a DEC 4100 and
we strip 3 disks with just 2 SCSI channel. Performance
is okay with 1 million plus hit per day.
