Hi all: (non inn guru here, so be gentle on me) :-)
I saw a message about a week ago about tunning a Solaris filesystem to
improve INN disk I/O and can't for the life of me find that post.
I'm running INN 2.2 snapshot from about a month ago, on a Solaris 2.7 X86
Dual PIII system.
512Meg ram (will be 1Gig tomorrow sometime) (bunch of swapping going on)
bout 160Gig of HD's across many drives split into 2 gig cnfs slices
and 4 Symbios U2W controller ports
I'm getting hammered with my /news/db directory accesses
iostat -xtc 4 shows that hd access to that drive is often 85% or higher (busy)
Thought I saw someone say something about adding a line to /etc/system to
delay disk writes (cache). Any suggestions on that front?
System is taking couple good feeds and a Cidera (skycache) feed of about
80Gig/day. I can't seem to keep up.
Think I'm also saturating our 10Meg ether card in the box, so I'll bump
that to a 100Meg connection tomorrow too.
