RBSU setting on DL580 G2 for MS Exchange

There is a setting when I go into F9 of a DL580 G2 in the Advanced Options to optimize the processor for I/O or optimize the processor for memory.

I'm planning on using this as an Exchange server. What should I optimize this for?

John:

Exchange is also I/O intensive depending on the size of your organization.
Read this: ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/products/servers/benchmarks/dl650-mse2k.pdf

For the benchmark, they optimized for I/O.
Enjoy!

Excellent, that is what I currently have it set to optimize I/O. Thanks for the info John!

No prob.

Be sure that once you have the server up and all your users plugging away at it that you take periodic CPU and I/O measurements to make sure the tuning is good.

You can always add disks (spindles) cheaply to help I/O problems but when you get CPU bound, the expense is always greater. Knowing what your load is and watching growth over time will give you the benchmark for the next time you have to hit the budget for a new box. Quotas on your users can help keep this in check as well.

G'luck
Enjoy!
