NAV5 with an old native (*.fdb) database in 10 parts of 20 gb.
The virtual table "Database File" say each database file has an average read and write delay of 0-3 msec, while users are working.
The underlying disc system is a huge SAN, so the hardware people say it is not an issue having all the database parts on the same logical drive. I am a bit in doubt. I seem to recall that fdb files had to be on different drives for the native NAV server to take advantage of splitting the database in parts. In the old days, when one logical drive was one (simple mirrored) physical disc it was due to physical restraints. But does NAV also expect that each logical drive can only be accessed once at a time, or can it take advantage of a SAN?
Anyone who can recall that? :-)
