Default SOFTRAID(4)

I'm thinking of implementing RAID 1 and has anyone been using SOFTRAID(4) for their RAID setup? How do you like it?

Softraid for RAID 1 is not ready for production use. It cannot recover from a failure, nor continue in degraded mode (single drive) in the event of an outage.

If you wish a software RAID 1, use RAIDframe until softraid development for RAID 1 completes.

As to when ... my guess would be OpenBSD 4.5+; 4.4 may get a functioning RAID 0 and CRYPTO only.

SOFTRAID in 4.4 may just have RAID 1 production capability-

But I wouldn't necessarily hold my breath ... between now and then anything can happen.

There's no recoverability mentioned. I believe this refers to the morphing metadata changes over the last week.
