Re: [redhat] Filesystem Performance
>> which I did, I managed to configure the iscsi and multipath. but my issue is the I/O performance . My question here isIts the matter of performance of "Filesystem or Application " ?. First you have to
identify the exact issue, who is running with poor performance! . I am not sure the present filesystem you are using and how you are testing the Filesystem performance.
Anyways, I would suggest you to check the following
* Run the same application in Local filesystem n check.
* Use latest kernel and check.

But not yet started Supported in Production environment as it is Technology Preview.

I am new with red hat, I was Solaris admin and now my company start using Red hat. they ask my configure red hat with Equal Logic array
which I did, I managed to configure the iscsi and multipath. but my issue is the I/O performance
My question here is
- which file system I should use to get the best performance
- shall I use LVM or no.
my file system is less than TB
At Solaris I use ZFS file system but in Linux I don't know which file system is the best
