IBM ServeRAID M5015 Setup
Posted on 2013-01-07
I have 5 500GB SAS drives in a RAID 0 configuration as I/O and space are my primary needs. This drive is used to stage database backups before going to tape.
I was wondering what settings I need to set in the logical drive setup for best performance.
Here are the current settings
Read Policy: No read ahead
Write Policy: Write back with BBU
IO Policy: Direct IO
Access Policy: Read Write
Disk Cache Policy: Disabled
Background Initialization: Enabled.
Are these the best settings for performance?
