AW: ASM # of Files
Date: Fri, 16 May 2008 00:48:04 +0200
Imho, the DR requirements argument is rather strong, I would not argue against that...;-)
You may find the ASM limits here:
I'll copy them for your convenience:
63 disk groups in a storage system
10,000 ASM disks in a storage system
4 petabyte maximum storage for each ASM disk
40 exabyte maximum storage for each storage system
1 million files for each disk group
Maximum files sizes as shown in the following table:
Disk Group Type Maximum File Size External redundancy 35 TB Normal redundancy 5.8 TB High redundancy 3.9 TB
hth (at least a bit:-))
> However, one limitation has been placed on me: the size of the files
presented to ASM will be limited to 33G due to DR requirements.
> I can't find the limit to the total number of files ASM can manage. The
only limitation I found was that a diskgroup is limited to 10k (or
> was it 1k?) files - probably more than I will manage in the next few years
for this implementation.
> What is the largest number of files you have in ASM (regardless of size)?
