Sybase on MD or LVM under Linux ?

Post by Robert Herzo » Wed, 12 Jul 2000 04:00:00



I am looking into improved performance for Sybase from a couple of SCSI
discs, but
cannot go for hardware RAID.
What is presently the better way to have two discs to be accessed
simultaneously, in order to reach better i/o ?
I used MD some time ago in another contexte and am told that LVM gives
similar possibilities.
By the way, my plan is to have Sybase database files on this volume. I
don't want to use the "raw" device possibility of Sybase, only writing
files to defined "devices" (logical files) from the RDBMS.
Advices ?
