    DISK Qty in RAID 5 group Recommeded

    848260
      Can anyone indicate what the ideal number of disks should be placed ina raid 5 group to achieve the best performanc ean best resilience in a 6180 array.

      I have been of the understanding that 7 or 8 disks is the ideal number to avoid too much latency with distributed parity and reduce the the chance of disk failing in the group if it had say 16 disks in the group.
