Re: Why "Separating Data and Indexes improves performance" is a myth?

but when I hear "5 disks", it makes me think of ... dirty things.

I never did try a block size of 6*1024 bytes. it would be interesting for a 6 disk, RAID 10 vol.

I would think that non-power of 2 block sizes would subject the actor with ORA-600s beyond their wildest dreams.

btw - I have not experienced the degredation reported by Jonathan Lewis (~12) regarding not getting 16 blocks per read for full table scans (or 32 when using a dbfmbrc of 32). But I only use powers of 2 for RAID stripes.
