With the performance boosts included in recent solaris versions I'm
told that there's not much of a difference between handing the database
raw devices vs. using a filesystem anymore.
To test this out, my customer would like to try both ufs and vxfs
filesystems in the global zone and lofs mount them to a local zone
and test the database on that lofs mount.
Are there any options that should be supplied for the lofs mount and
are there any options for the ufs and/or vxfs mounts that should be
employed to assure the performance should be close to raw devices?
