On-prem is where NAV has ran for ages, and where it will still primarily run for a while more. So I test several on-prem configurations with different processors, disks, and memory, to see how these configuration behave in scenarios I described in the original post.
I don’t have too many different hardware configurations to test, but I do have those
- An i7-3770 machine with two OCZ Vertex4 SSD disks and a Western Digital Caviar this or that, and 32 GB of RAM.
- An i7-6700K machine at 4GHz with two Samsung M2 950 SSD disks (at 2.5 GB/s read and 1.5 GB/s write speed), two Samsung EVO Pro 850 (at 500 GB/s read/write), and a Seagate something or other 8TB drive, and 64 GB of RAM.
All in all, I tested these configurations with:
- Data and log being on different SSD disks.
- Data and log being on the same SSD disk.
- Data and log being on the same magnetic HDD drive.
Let’s see the results.
