NFS Server Performance and Tuning Guide for Sun Hardware

Using Log-Based File Systems With Solstice DiskSuite or Online: DiskSuite 3.0

The Solaris 2.4 through Solaris 7 software environments and the Online: Disk Suite 3.0 or Solstice DiskSuite software support a log-based extension to the standard UNIX file system, which works like a disk-based Prestoserve NFS accelerator.

In addition to the main file system disk, a small (typically 10 Mbytes) section of disk is used as a sequential log for writes. This speeds up the same kind of operations as a Prestoserve NFS accelerator with two advantages:

Note -

You cannot use the Prestoserve NFS accelerator and the log on the same file system.
