Disk I/O Tuning
Chapter 3: Optimizing Disk Interface Performance
Each of the disk
interfaces we have discussed in chapter 2 is optimized in a
different manner. In some cases, there may be little or nothing you
can do to adjust how the interface is used by your system, in
others, you may have almost complete control. For example, the ATA
interface can be adjusted in Linux using the hdparm command.
While in Windows, you may have little or no ability to adjust the
ATA interface. Let's begin with the ATA interface.
Generally speaking, if you are dealing with ATA disks you will be
using a Windows 2000 server or a Linux server. You will probably
have a maximum of 4 internal IDE/ATA drives with the operating
system and software occupying one of the drives. Hopefully, the
swap area will be spread over several drives, as will the database
(unless the ATA drives have been RAIDed).
