Best config for Sql 2008 x64 on Windows 2003 x64
Posted on 2008-10-25
I need some help building out this system.
I built it out with two 8 drive ADG Logical drives.
I put Data on one logical drive and OS,Logs,Backup on the other.
It was my understanding that ADG would be faster than Raid 10, regardless I didn't have enough drive space to do raid 10 at the time.
I plan to move an existing MSA 500 with 14 146 gig 15K drives to this machine, with a dedicated controller (the one that comes with the msa500.
Is it best to create a new ADG Logical drive or a raid 10 drive. What should I put on that drive (data or logs or both?
Should I Reconfig the non OS partition back to raid 10?
BTW, all the sas drives are DP.
Both P400's have 512 BBWC
The MSA 500 has 512 BBWC
My perfmon shows low use of the current data logical drive, but high use of the log logical drive.
