With 7x18 raid0 I easilly get 90Mb bandwidth (FC so 100Mb is the
theoretical limit)
but that's ext2. ext3 will get a slightly lower bandwidth in the default
due to the way it tries to guarantee data consistency. If I switch ext3
to metadata only mode
(like reiserfs and XFS) I get similar performance to ext2.
