Anyone using "enable hardware write back" setting?

I know it will give performance. But the OES docs state not to use it
when using journaled file system like NSS. Odd. Additionally all the
Dell raid cards(lsi flavored) come with write-back on by default. Yet
netware comes with write-back off by default. Thanks for any info.

there you go - it doesn't play nice with NSS - I think it worked fairly
well with TFS

yes - instead of waiting while it writes to disk, it writes to cache
and then writes to disk when it is idle
