correct /etc/vfstab settings for VxVM on Solaris 10 for Oracle 9, 10, 11 (non-RAC primarily...but RAC needed, too)

does anyone know the best settings for /etc/vfstab options to optimize Oracle 9, 10, or 11 running under Solaris 10?

I have a partner who has a large customer with ongoing issues getting things to stabilize for NBU/Oracle backups, and this is one area they want to explore.

Thanks for any and all feedback.

sorry, the email query i received was:

Can you get me answer as to what Symantec recommends for mount options when mounting a VXFS file system on Solaris host that will be used for an Oracle database?

Hope that adds some details that help.


Hi Sapidus, You question

Hi Sapidus,

You question isn't clear. Kindly repharse as to what you are looking in /etc/vfstab?


This should be answered by

This should be answered by DBAs I think since they know what sort of database that is, it might be read intensive or write intensive or hybrid....

Options like convosync=direct, mincache=direct are seen majorly....
