Hi all,

I was wonder what experiences there are out there with using RAID-X for
performance increases. I do use RAID-1 (2 disks) but am interested in
attemtps to gain higher R/W performance. Do the RAID-5's etc give 
performace increases?

A significant help for me was using ccache for compiling programs. That was
 a real performance increase.

Thanks for any suggestions/opinions.
