Database Server Optimization for EIM

The overall performance of EIM is largely dependent on the overall performance of the database server. To achieve optimal database server performance, it is critical that the tables and indexes in the database be arranged across available disk devices in a manner that evenly distributes the processing load.

The mechanism for distributing database objects varies by RDBMS, depending on the manner in which storage space is allocated. Most databases have the ability to assign a given object to be created on a specific disk.

A redundant array of independent disks (or RAID) can provide large amounts of I/O throughput and capacity, while appearing to the operating system and RDBMS as a single large disk (or multiple disks, as desired, for manageability).

The use of RAID can greatly simplify the database layout process by providing an abstraction layer above the physical disks while achieving high performance. Regardless of the RDBMS you implement and your chosen disk arrangement, be sure that you properly distribute the following types of database objects:

By following these suggestions, you should be able to improve the performance of the database server.
