Raid 1 and Raid 0 explained


I’m afraid you dont even get something as simple as:
Raid 1 : faast
Raid 0 : slow

Raid 1 brings safety by allowing you to half of screwed drives
Raid 0 brings you the comfort to know that when a drive is crashed, you can go home. To cry.

But speed wise it’s a different story:
– You have twice the same data, so write speed should be, let’s say, “normal
– You have 2 disks to read from. With the proper disks, controllers and bla bla, you read faster.

Raid 0:
– You write faster
– You read faster

So, in some cases where you require those little boosts, and the data is not “i’m going to kill myself if i lose this” important, then why not, just stack a few extra drives nearby ;)

In jflory’s case, a failed drive, would mean both drives are not useable, then waiting for the replacement, and timing … Yes that’s a lot of downtime for gaining a few G you might be able to save up anyway.

Dont be that guy Jflory!

Apache or nginx real-time log analysis

Real-time log analysis through a Dashboard

GoAccess‘ dashboard gives you an overview of server metrics by displaying summaries of different reports as panels on a single scrollable view.


Logstalgia is a website traffic visualization that replays or streams web-server access logs as a pong-like battle between the web server and an never ending torrent of requests.

Requests appear as colored balls (the same color as the host) which travel across the screen to arrive at the requested location. Successful requests are hit by the paddle while unsuccessful ones (eg 404 – File Not Found) are missed and pass through.

The paths of requests are summarized within the available space by identifying common path prefixes. Related paths are grouped together under headings. For instance, by default paths ending in png, gif or jpg are grouped under the heading Images. Paths that don’t match any of the specified groups are lumped together under a Miscellaneous section.
