Help with LSI MegaRAID settings

Recommended Posts


I was given an LSI MegaRAID 9260-8i by a friend. I've got an array up and running, but I'm not sure if I've chosen the optimal/correct virtual drive properties.

The controller does not have a BBU - these are the settings I've chosen:


Are these settings OK or is there something else you can suggest to get the best out of the array?

I think that's good. At first I was going to say: if you're turning off write cache (because of no BBU), then turn off disk cache as well. However, I don't think you have too much to worry about in the case of power loss if this is a movie storage device - you won't be writing too it that much? And if you are writing a movie when the power goes off, you'd just have to record that movie again anyway.
