Abstract: This study provides guidelines for disk configuration and tuning hints with regard to ECKD and FCP disk devices, and specifically for the Oracle standalone database using a transactional workload (OLTP) in a LPAR from System z 196 EC. It also compares the behavior of Oracle release 11g with release 10g. The objective of this paper is to help you decide which disk type is appropriate and to describe how to optimize disk throughput rates.
