I have 16 Seagate Barracuda ES.2 drives in a RAID array. If I select "tags per drive" parameter too high, I get "unexpected drive timeout" across all drives under heavy use. What value should I select for reliable yet fast operation?
It is a hardware dependent value, generally 8 seems safe, although 16 seems to be the upper bound on the drives we have.
I have looked at the data sheets and can't see the correct value. If you bought the whole thing as a system then the vendor should be able to supply the correct information
