looking for recommendations on ESX4 OS - VMFS version3:
RAID-5 : matching the stripe size with VMFS block size? (64K, 128K etc)
RAID controller options: "adaptive read ahead, write-back" on PERC 6i
i have read that smaller stipes are good for writes and larger for reads. Since this is virtual env, not sure whats good.
what impact if any has aligning VMFS & data disks in Virtual machines? Appreciate your comments.
