Question about traid redundancy and downtime
« on: November 11, 2018, 11:01:19 am »
As i understand in case of raid-f if i want to have to access to all data without downtime i have to build pool with devices which provide some redundancy. Like raid1 (hardware or software) nodes or such.
But what about traid. What happens if one device fails. I know there are some parity data but do i have access to data written on it? How many devices can fail?

Yes.

The number of device failures you can handle is equal to the number of parity drives (PPUs) you set up.

Note that the developer has been unresponsive for some time now, so you should either explore other options or wait for him to return.  This isn't the first time this has happened.
