RE: iSeries and SSD drives



fixed

Mike,
With 15% Disk utilization, maybe your best $ value is i Series Nav index advisor.
Seems you are currently "running from memory" primarily and a few well-placed
indexes could give good results on any "slow" jobs/reports

Subject: iSeries and SSD drives

Has anyone moved to using SSD drives and if so have you seen any significant performance improvement by doing so? We are not in need of additional space (running about 50%) and disk utilization (% busy) is not extremely high (10-15%). Wondering if a plan to migrate to SSD would be worthwhile.
