Hello Mark, Stefan
The good approach is always test and compare.
Have a nice weekend

AND this benchmark is important for any actual configuration: Even if some
vendor expands the limits of a single bus to their SSD LUN beyond the speed
(latency and bandwidth) of SSD or any future persistent memory, it is still
very likely connected to something on the host computer that is much faster
as multiple separate channels from the persistent memory into your computer
The plumbing is complicated with many layers of competing latency and
bandwidth. This is a good reason to think good thoughts about Kevin Closson
for the end to end actual performance RESULT from the stack for Oracle via
BORING is good, be a SLOBber.

first counter question for storage vendor would be: Can you please provide
a benchmark (with raw data if possible) that proves your statement?
I mean it is always important to check what they are referring/comparing
to. Comparing one SSD/Flash LUN to some old rusty spindle disks ... well
yes ... in this case SSD/Flash might always be faster and you are happy
However if you compare one SSD LUN vs. ten SSD LVM striped LUNs with +15K
IOPS or so ... well then the picture is different.
This topic is pretty easy to verify. Just run your workload (e.g. SLOB
benchmark) on a file system backed by one big SSD LVM LUN and on file
system backed by ten striped LVM SSD LUNs and monitor with iostat -xk 1
<LUNs> .... you gonna see the difference for sure.
Based on my experience with a lot of performance benchmarks - multiple
striped (SSD) LUNs make an impact on systems with big I/O load :-)

per lun on scsi.Two years ago I made test on ssd , and have multiple luns
Hello ,Storage vendors claim that we do not care anymore about io queue
on data rather than a big one improve performance. Does anyone have
feedback about it ?
