    Default New Storage Device

    I thought I would just drop this off here. Our new direct attached storage device,2.jpg XFS filesystem to cover the > 16TB. I have read the EXT4 can now support partitions > 16TB, however the fsprog tools are very new and redhat does not recommend ext4 for production with > 16TB. Before someone asks, only one power supply attached to the R610 server, hence the amber light.

    Code:
    [root@HISTARCHIVE01 ~]# df -kh
    Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sdb3             132G  4.5G  121G   4% /
    tmpfs                  24G     0   24G   0% /dev/shm
    /dev/sdb1             194M   30M  154M  17% /boot
    172.21.20.104:/export
                           67G   48G   16G  76% /mnt/kickstart
    /dev/sda1              82T   35M   82T   1% /mnt/histarchive01

    Hey Raj,
    Nice to hear from you. This baby is used to store stock market historical data. We have to store this data for every tick of a product, when I say a tick, I mean every time the price changes, when I say product I mean a stock symbol like IBM. So this can be a very large data set, especially for markets that include option data.

    Very cool.
