On a P7, 740 8205 E6C, I currently have 18 177 SSF-2 SSD (2844 gb; 5913 controllers) in a 5887 EXP24S I/O drawer, which is 100% of my production LPAR, CEC is not used for this LPAR.
We need to add disk for a few new PF and LF that will take a large amount of DASD.
I have 6 empty disk slots in a 5887 EXP24S I/O drawer.
I was planning on adding 6 775 SSF-2 SSD (3875 gb), one new RAID-5 parity set.
1) I could add these 6 drives to the current sys ASP.
These 6 drive would be accessed much more heavily because of the large difference in size.
Could this be a potential performance issue, because these would be "hot drives"?
"Hot drives" with SSD would not be as noticeable as with spinny hot drives.
2) I could create a new ASP for these 6 drives, and then place only these new files in this ASP.
Still have the hot drive issue, but less impact.
3) Are there other options??
