Multiple Disks

By shreeram44 ·
Hi,

We are configurerinf an application setup where in we need very large file system. We have four controllers and in each set there are 18 GB X 5 disks. We are using VXVM software for disk partitioning. We used to create many small size partitions for this purpose. WHat Happens if we create one big volume? In this case if one controller fails what happens? Is there any performance improvement? Can you post the procedure how to do this please.

Thanks,

Sreeram.

If you are using UNIX from DEC/Compaq and you want mirroring, investigate the Logical Storage Manager. Less than 2% overhead and seamless (+rapid) mirroring of disks and shelves. It is an excellent dynamic device mirroring tool (0, 1, and 0+1).If you are using UNIX from DEC/Compaq and you need drive spanning or dynamic addition/subtraction of space to/from drives, investigate the Advanced File System (AdvFS).
