[nycbug-talk] FreeBSD gmirror

Wondering if anyone has used FreeBSD's geom gmirror for production 
purposes, and what their experiences are.

I'm not a fan of software raid, but decided to make the leap, and it's 
been pretty seamless in testing.  I know sometimes there's issues with 
different manufacturer's drives (these are SATA) in one mirror, but it 
tested fine.  I could almost call it a pleasant experience.

And no, I'm not running ZFS here. . .

Another related question, has anyone used geom-based UFS journaling with 
gmirror or on its own?
