I'm looking for commonly used stripe options like chunk-size and stripe width etc. I'm looking to create stripe environment for large files

@laks: do you have any more context for this question? What application(s), disk size(s), disk type(s), distribution(s)? –  warren Mar 15 '10 at 16:30

Benchmark, benchmark, benchmark. Then benchmark some more. Try out different configurations and see which ones are the fastest.

For large files you will probably want 'large' chunk-sizes and stripe widths.
