- Which is better, RAID 3 or RAID 5? Can I use LSM with a RAID disk? Will I get better swapping performance if I swap to a striped disk? Disk storage has become one of the most critical, yet perplexing resources to manage in a UNIX environment. This seminar sheds light on the problem by explaining in detail each of the major storage alternatives available on Tru64 UNIX: RAID hardware, Logical Storage Manager software, and the AdvFS file system. Each will be examined to discover strengths and weaknesses, relative performance, redundancy features and relative cost. In addition, detailed set up and management examples will be provided, and the tools and procedures will be discussed thoroughly.
