RE: Dell-Oracle-Linux: Anyone else run this...because its not working for us!

I've been running Oracle on the following config with no problems for a couple years, averaging about 500 IOPS (350 reads/s + 40 writes/sec times 4 due to the RAID 5 parity = 350+(40*4)=510 IOPS). The write performance is terrible due to RAID5, but other than that it seems to run great. Maybe there is just a problem with Linux or RAC running on this hardware?

Dell replaced our controller. The Dell technician opined as how the PERC controller probably wasn't up to the load imposed by Oracle. This was in a RAID 0 configuration.

I guess that's what you get when you go with the lowest bidder.

Looking forward to honing my recovery techniques to a fine edge --- again.
