DPM 2010 Storage Pool Disk I/O Characteristics RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am setting up a new DPM server connected to a Dell MD3000i ISCSI SAN for the storage pool. While configuring the LUN I can select different disk segement sizes (128KB, 256KB). What is the preferred segment size for DPM 2010?

  • Hi,

    I'm not sure what that segment size is, but DPM does not have any special requirements, we just make variable sized volumes on the disk(s) in the storage pool and format them NTFS using default 4K cluster sizes.
