You never know but it seems to be one of the easiest to find out ...Well, the SAN appears to be the limiting factor. I set up the DB on the local scsi discs (software RAID 1) and performance is excellent (better than the old server). Thanks for everyone's help. Alex
What kind of SAN is it and how many + what kind of HDs are in it? Assuming the answers are reasonable...Profile the table IO pattern your workload generates and start allocating RAID sets to tables or groups of tables based on IO pattern.
For any table or group of tables that has a significant level of write IO, say >= ~25% of the IO mix, try RAID 5 or 6 first, but be prepared to go RAID 10 if performance is not acceptable.
Don't believe any of the standard "lore" regarding what tables to put where or what tables to give dedicated spindles to.
Profile, benchmark, and only then start allocating dedicated resources.For instance, I've seen situations where putting pg_xlog on its own spindles was !not! the right thing to do.
