Re: raw logical volumes

hi atulkumar ;

raw logical volumes are used especially for performance issues or RAC. under normal filesystem usage, a filesystem is created on raw device ( /dev/vg??/rlvolxx ) and oracle data files put on these filesystem. you can see these fs by bdf command. but in raw devic concept oracle data files put directly on raw device without creating a fs on the raw device . so fs buffer cache is not used. in single system , it depend on choice , using raw device. but in rac you have to use raw devices in hp-ux ( if you are not using an expensive product CFS )
