I have 24 NL-SAS disk drives with 4TB per disk.
This will sum up to 96 TB but after doing some studying with cluster sizing, I understood allocating 96 TB per data path will not be a good idea.
So, my choices will be,
- Split the RAID groups (RAID 0 or RAID 1+0) into smaller size between 4 TB - 6TB.
- One big RAID 1+0 but splitting the partition using lvm. Each volume size will be 4 TB - 6 TB.
In either case , I will need to create multiple data path but would there be any limit with the number of paths?
Any advice is appreciated!
