Optimizing Fusion ioMemory on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 for Database Performance Acceleration


This paper examines the performance characteristics of Fusion-io PCI-E Solid State Drives on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. Testing was done in two phases. Phase one was running different transfer
sizes and queue depth to test the limits of the drive. In Phase two, the drives were used for running database workloads with different database engines and different types of database workloads. The workload results obtained on the Fusion-io drives were compared with results obtained with 4G Fibre Channel storage.
