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
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??
