Rob, I asked a similiar question back in November, query this:

NWSSTG size ?

6 Minimum, keep the size consistent.

Hi Rob

I've just set up a new guest partition for a customer recently and
found this document which might help:

This document also suggested a rule of thumb of 6-8 storage spaces per
i client (though I didn't exactly stick to this)

Interestingly there is a suggestion in this document to consider
configuring a separate ASP/IASP for the network storage spaces in some
circumstances. I wish I had known this earlier as it might have had
some effect on my thinking.

I also found this document useful:

An also a performance capabilities document I located that I can't
find a link for right now.

Is there a MINIMUM recommended size? For example, V5R4 required a
load source size of 17GB
Power 5's will be the last to support the 17GB drives
If I take a 280GB system and bust it up into 6 drives that's roughly
46GB/drive. One of those links suggested making them the size of
IBM drives (but no reason why). So, should I make them eight 35GB
And what is 'standard'? Rough answer would be 35, 70, 140, 280 but what
would one put on CRTNWSSTG?
