Alternative ways of configuring an I/O subsystem with multiple disks to improve the I/O performance are considered. Specifically, the author consider disk synchronization, data declustering/disk striping, and a combination of both these approaches. They evaluate many different organizations that have not been considered before. The effects of block size and other parameters of the system are ex
