I already know the RAID is a software RAID made with dmraid (or I assume so based on the fact that df-h shows /dev/mapper/VolGroup..., also /dev/md0 is inactive).

I've run dmraid -r and get:

/dev/sda: ddf1, ".ddf1_disks", GROUP, ok, 1953253376 sectors, data@ 0
/dev/sdb: ddf1, ".ddf1_disks", GROUP, ok, 1953253376 sectors, data@ 0

But I was unable to find information of the format of results. How do I find out details of the RAID setup. Specifically level of RAID (RAID 0 or RAID 1?). Does 0 at the stand for RAID 0?

dmraid with the -s switch should get you the level.

dmraid -s

Shown under 'type'.

Oh, FYI: the md0, md1, etc. is not the RAID level, but rather the individual partition on the RAID, just like you have /dev/sd0, /dev/sd1, /dev/hd1, etc.

I did try -s but I tried using it with the group name which didn't work... That one works fine. Thanks! –  Nux Apr 9 '13 at 13:08
cat /proc/mdstat

Look for the "personalities" bit.

That would work only for RAID set with mdadmin. Which I'm not using. –  Nux Apr 9 '13 at 13:07
