I am new to storage area I am testing some storage systems but am trying to understand the concepts.
I am using IOzone to test the system I have multiple pare maters on the storage side swell as test side which I can alter how ever i am trying to understand and align the parameters for some reasonable (expected) performance results
OK now while I am testing this storage system I am trying to understand these concepts here:
Filesystem and Storage Settings:
What is Segment size?
What is Stripe size ?
What is File system Block Size?
What is Chunk Size?
How do I align all these parameters in a 60 disk storage system with what RAID 6? How many disks should I have in each volume?
If any one have best practices to test storage systems please point me or guide me in that direction. Is there a different testing tool i should be using ?
