Yes, it's a licensed software for RAID1 and above, RAID0 is not licensed... It's called XLV/XVM...

both xlv and xvm come with irix but aren't installed by default. xlv is rather obsolete and only there for backward compatibility - i highly recommend xvm these days. Install eoe.sw.xvm (and sysadm_xvm if you want the GUI for it) and get the xvm guide from techpubs:

striping (raid0) and concat are free, mirroring (raid1) is only available if you got the plexing license though (thrue for both xlv and xvm)
