Solstice DiskSuite 4.2.1 Reference Guide

Configuration Planning Guidelines

This section provides a list of guidelines for working with concatenations, stripes, mirrors, RAID5 metadevices, state database replicas, and file systems constructed on metadevices.

Concatenation Guidelines

Note -

Disk geometry differences do not matter with disks that use Zone Bit Recording (ZBR), because the amount of data on any given cylinder varies with the distance from the spindle. Most disks now use ZBR.
