One thing I've found with gpfs (in IBM Aix): it uses a default (minimal?) blocksize of 16K. Taking into account the well known bu^H^Hissues Oracle has when blocksize differs from 8K particularly if using any of ASSM or auto-memory management, I'm very reluctant to use gpfs. Not because of the product itself: because of Oracle. Received on Wed Oct 19 2011 - 17:05:59 CDT
