Hello,

I have 30 disks of 2,8GB each. i'm looking to handle a big database on Linux using all of these disks. (40GB)
Is there a way to tell mysql to use an unique database spreaded on all of these disks ?

Thanks for your help.

Go here:

http://www.mysql.com/doc/C/R/CREATE_TABLE.html

and read up on the RAID_TYPE option.  You spread out individual tables on the disk, rather than just specifying the whole database.  This gives you finer granularity of control.

Ok, i understand. this is a possibility. But my first purpose is to tell mySql to handle itself the wole database on these disks ? Any other suggestions ?

Well, the other suggestion is to use a hardware or software RAID disk configuration dedicated to the database. E.g., buy a RAID SCSI controller.  Or use the software RAID built in to Windows NT or Linux, or whatever you are runnning.

Thanks. I discover another idea to do that using LVM.
