VIA V-Raid, using RAID for consumer-marketed drives can be risky, and so-called "enterprise class" drives limit this error recovery time to reduce risk. The utility enabled TLER time limited error recoverywhich limits the error recovery time to seven seconds. Around SeptemberWestern VIA V-Raid disabled this feature in their desktop drives e. Similar technologies are used by Seagate, Samsung, and Hitachi. For non-RAID usage, an enterprise class drive with a short error recovery timeout that cannot be changed is therefore less suitable than a desktop drive.

VIA V-Raid Many studies cite operator VIA V-Raid as the most common source of malfunction, [70] such as a server operator replacing the incorrect drive in a faulty RAID, and disabling the system even temporarily in the process. An array is also vulnerable to controller failure because it is not always possible to migrate it to a new, different controller without data loss.

Since many drive failures are due to mechanical issues which are more likely on older drivesthis violates the assumptions of independent, identical rate of failure amongst drives; failures are in fact statistically correlated. In a study of aboutdrives, the probability of two drives in the same cluster failing within one hour was four times larger than predicted by the exponential statistical distribution —which characterizes processes in which events occur continuously and independently at a constant average rate. The probability of two failures in the same hour period was twice as large as predicted by an exponential distribution.

The recovery of UREs involves remapping of affected underlying disk sectors, utilizing the drive's sector remapping pool; in case of UREs detected during background scrubbing, data redundancy provided VIA V-Raid a fully operational RAID set allows the missing data to be reconstructed and rewritten to a remapped sector. Therefore, larger-capacity drives may VIA V-Raid hours if not days to rebuild, during which time other drives may fail or yet undetected read errors may surface. The rebuild time is also limited if the entire array is still in operation at reduced capacity. Even though individual drives' mean time between failure MTBF have increased over time, this increase has not kept pace with the increased storage capacity of the drives.

The time to rebuild the array after a single drive failure, as well as the chance of a second failure during a rebuild, have increased over time. Triple parity schemes, or triple mirroring, have been suggested as one approach to improve resilience to an additional drive failure during this large rebuild time.

Recently mdadm fixed it by introducing a dedicated journaling device to avoid performance penalty, typically, SSDs and NVMs are preferred for that purpose. Database researcher Jim VIA V-Raid wrote "Update in Place is a Poison Apple" during the early days of relational database commercialization. If the system experiences a power loss or other major failure, the data may be irrevocably lost from the cache before reaching the non-volatile storage. For this reason good write-back cache implementations include mechanisms, such as redundant battery power, to preserve cache contents across system failures including power failures and to flush the cache at system restart time.


Hi, sorry for my bad english, but iam from Spain. Transfer rate up to 1. Support totally 2 SATA devices. Before the installation of the controller card, let VIA V-Raid. It came with no manual.

This is what it looks like: My CD doesnt contain any manual only drivers ive looked at the enitre CD. Via VIA V-Raid serial raid controller driver download 10 dollar cars, unlockable vehicals, faster speed and parameters for Need For Speed Hot Pursuit 2 on the personal computer. Support Serial ATA 1.


Let Windows search the CD for drivers and use VIA V-Raid boot maker to create a bootable usb stick. Compliant with Serial ATA 1.

Primary drive Sata running VIA V-Raid pci card. Secondary drive IDE off motherboard. Clean custom install of VIA V-Raid to replace XP on the Sata. Cleared all the issues I could find with drivers etc. Released under Creative Commons License. The included driver CD doesn't have a setup. SATA Cable x 2.

And the status of the Seagate hard disk is not detected in both Hard Disk Sentinel and in the Via tool. I just selected these completely different models to illustrate the current situation. I'd more than happy if this would be a bug in Hard Disk Sentinel. Then I'd immediately give a solution or even, this conversation would never happen as it would be already fixed. But as you can see, VIA V-Raid driver does not report the status - even to the VIA tool. The VIA V-RAID Software Package supports VIA V-RAID technology. It includes a software tool and drivers to support the RAID functions of the. Download VIA V-RAID Driver A. OS support: Windows (all).
