Hi !

Re: raw decice with lvm or raw device dsk


The answer is it depends and largely on what type database you have and what type of disks (vendor and model) your using.

Now if your using oracle, then filesystems would be recommended. If your using Informix, then raw logical volumes would be the preference.
