Storage for the DBA
Presenter: Denny Cherry, Awareness Technologies
Session 17: September 16 at 16:00 GMT
One of the biggest issues in database performance centers around storage. Storage is also one of the hardest places to troubleshoot performance issues because storage engineers and database administrators often do not speak the same language. This session covers storage from both the database and storage perspectives. We’ll dig into LUNs, HBAs, and the fabric, as well as RAID groups. In addition to theory, we’ll look at an actual EMC SAN so that you can translate what you see in the storage array with what you see on the actual server.
