Eric, This is not a simple question to answer as usual, it depends. If you have some part of your date that is accessed very very frequently it is pssible that you could get a performance benefit by putting it into a separate ASP. WHat you MUST look out for is that the ASP should be in a completly separate RAID set or sets or IO to the ASP sharing the set will impact it, AND you must provide enough arms to satisfy the IO requirement in that ASP. Generally I have found that just having enough total arms in the system for the required IO load is the key to good performance. 36 drives on a 640 would not generally be enough. - Larry firstname.lastname@example.org wrote: > > We've been trying to track down some performance problems, and the > question has arisen: Does defining an ASP for our application data > have any performance benefits?
