Example -- Concatenated Stripe

Figure 2-3 illustrates that d10 is a concatenation of three stripes.

The first stripe consists of three slices, Disks A through C, with an interlace of 16 Kbytes. The second stripe consists of two slices Disks D and E, and uses an interlace of 32 Kbytes. The last stripe consists of a two slices, Disks F and G. Because no interlace is specified for the third stripe, it inherits the value from the stripe before it, which in this case is 32 Kbytes. Sequential data chunks are addressed to the first stripe until that stripe has no more space. Chunks are then addressed to the second stripe. When this stripe has no more space, chunks are addressed to the third stripe. Within each stripe, the data chunks are interleaved according to the specified interlace value.
