FlexRAID Wiki: a selection of howto!
« on: September 29, 2011, 05:12:27 am »
The wiki already contains a good set of guides, faqs, tips, etc.
There is an ongoing effort to clean it up, but it's already a good base to get started, and a good source of information.

So do not hesitate to browse through it, and comment here on the articles - propose updates, corrections, bugs, etc.

See: http://wiki.flexraid.com/

Update: the Storage Pool guide is now up, courtesy of jasonwc!

Are these temporarily down?  I've been trying to access them for a few days, but they're all down.  http://wiki.flexraid.com/

Someone fixed it.  Thanks!

The Wiki page http://wiki.flexraid.com/ is down again, and has been for some time.

I would love to check it out before I start trialling FlexRAID in my HTPC system. Perhaps someone could have a look at it, or at least let us know what is going on?

thank you.

It makes practically no difference. All you need is the individual PPU(s) to be equal or larger than the individual DRUs.

I put together a flowchart with the information from the wiki page "Expert Mode: Maintaining Your Snapshot RAID" because it seems too wordy to me.

Any suggestions, additions, subtractions? I'd like to add things in there like the recommended frequencies to perform each task for example.

Should we append something like this to the wiki page to make the process more visual?

@mpeterson
Nice! :)

I am curious to see if others find the format of the information useful.
I will wait for others input before I provide my own as this will be more valuable as user driven content.
