We have a problem translating "stripe" in system-config-lvm, because the
comment on it makes us doubt:
#. ##TRANSLATOR: Striping writes data to multiple physical devices
#. ##concurrently, with the objective being redundance and/or speed
msgid "Stripe Size field"
I know very little about LVM, but how does "stripe" provide redundance?
I am reading "stripe" as in RAID:
"A RAID 0 (also known as a striped set) splits data evenly across two or
more disks with no parity information for redundancy." (wikipedia)
and it looks like the comment ("the objective being redundance...")
contradicts a bit the concept in RAID.
Any hints? Is the comment wrong, or is it right and just the concept of
"striping" in LVM is different than that of RAID?
Thanks a lot!
