Good linux software RAID primer advise

Dear Experts,

Could someone recommend good Linux software RAID primer. It would be good
if it has good coverage of monitoring and dealing with failures.

I inherited a couple of boxes with big bunch of software RAIDs each, and I
even may have some problems, but I don't want to bother anybody with
specifics unless I really hit brick wall, not just my own ignorance.

Thanks in advance for all your answers!

Valeri

The red hat family of linux is my advise. Most practical is a Centos 7.4 version, since its support many application software packages. Skype, libre Office, Firefox, thunderbird.

Good luck with the configurationĀ !

Best.
