Tuning I/O

The performance of a file system can be enhanced by a suitable choice of I/O sizes and proper alignment of the I/O requests based on the requirements of the underlying special device. VxFS provides tools to tune the file systems.

  Note   The following tunables and the techniques work on a per file system basis. Use them judiciously based on the underlying device properties and characteristics of the applications that use the file system.
