oracle discs used for data storage
Posted on 2014-04-07
I have a new oracle 11r2 server on rhel 6.5.
os discs look like this:
/dev/xvda1 ext4 /
/dev/xvdc1 ext3 /tmp
/dev/mapper/vg-u01 ext4 /u01
/dev/mapper/vg2-u02 ext4 /u02
I alos have 3 tb of discs, which will be used with oracleasm that I am unfamiliar with. the data will be imported to those discs which hold all of the existing oracle database records.
My question is how should those discs be formatted, ext4 I assume ?
or does oracleasm handle this, and the discs should be left as raw devices perhaps?
