quick i o for databases

Quick I/O





Quick I/O for Databases
  • Breakthrough VERITAS File System interface technology
  • Presents regular VERITAS File System files to Oracle as raw character devices
    • Allows parallel updates to database files for increased throughput
    • Takes advantage of kernel async I/O (Solaris’ KAIO)
    • Sybase handles locking for data integrity
  • Eliminates traditional UNIX file system overhead



oltp benchmark results
OLTP Benchmark Results
  • Quick I/O and raw disk I/O produce equal performance for OLTP benchmark
    • Derived from TPC-C - mix of read-only and update-intensive transactions in order-entry environments
  • All configurations
  • include VERITAS
  • Volume Manager.
  • Test configuration
  • included:
  • Sun Ultra Enterprise
  • 4000 (4 CPUs;
  • 512 MG of RAM)
  • Solaris 2.5.1
  • VERITAS Database
  • Edition 1.2 for Sybase
  • Sybase ASE 11.5.1
  • TPC-0C scale factor
  • of 100
cached quick i o overview
Cached Quick I/O Overview
  • Implemented as a buffered read, direct write solution
    • Retains data reliability advantage of direct write
    • Gains read-ahead at the File System and memory-to-memory copy performance advantage
  • Easy online management to turn Cache on/off for Quick I/O files
    • Like Quick I/O, enabled on a per-file basis
  • Multiple database instances can co-exist with selective caching for specific datafiles
veritas storage administrator
VERITAS Storage Administrator
  • Simplifies Management
    • Allows one-step graphical execution of common configuration management steps
database edition ha veritas cluster server
