How hard would it be to eliminate the zoning..? I dont think this is related nor ZFS but if you could test w/o these changes then youd know for sure.

I dont know why you would do this in the first place. Zones are appropriate for some things and you generally get better throughput from ZFS over UFS but zones just stir up the pot for me.

Dedicate the box(es) to Oracle only - dont even make a special project for it - just use default. Keep things simple as possible.

Maybe you have reasons for all this fancy overhead but so far I see none : > Received on Fri Jun 13 2008 - 21:32:52 CDT
