Let's say I have the following directories on my main server, each of which is a software RAID5 across four disks.


I am going to NFS mount on a number of computers to share access. Is there are performance difference between a single mount of /data/ vs. individually mounting the RAIDs using four separate mount commands in /etc/fstab?
