Dell hw. raid h730 & SSD's > best practice settings ?


Nov 5, 2016
Dear all,

I hope that someone is able to give me an advice for proper hw. raid 10 settings with 6 samsung enterprise ssds for Proxmox7 to host thin provisioned local vms and containers, in a best practice (performance wise) way.

Especially the following settings are not really clear which to choose:
1. Stripe size ?
2. disk cache on or off ?
3. read ahed, additive read ahead or disabled ?
4. write back or write through ?

Thanks and Best !
