Hello Eugene, Lars and list,

fortunately during the time our main server (with scsi hardware raid5) was in 
repair and when we had to rely on the failover system with ide software raid, 
we didn't experience any corruptions. At least nothing easy to notice. Of 
course, also with main+failover system there are no corruptions.

With all you hardware you have, I guess you also have ECC memory? We also 
always monitor our memory with bluesmoke (bluesmoke.sf.net). Recent versions 
also have "PCI bus parity error handling".
From my point of view it should be always used on any server system.
