Optimizing System Performance
The InveStore Storage Management v4 Software provides perfor mance parameters that are highly tunable to specific application requirements and considerations.
Memory usage, caching, and other options can be easily config ured for your application. You can control drive allocation, the minimum time and maximum time a volume can remain in a drive and the priority of read over write requests, for example.
There are a number of considerations that affect the performance of the storage system. The exact method needed to achieve peak performance depends a great deal on the equipment capabilities and how the system is used by your production appli cation.
This chapter provides information on managing these parame ters for tuning your system.
Note: This requires some analysis of the storage system, on the administratorís part. Adding the maximum capacity of RAM for your serverís motherboard will have the greatest impact on performance.
