Wondering two things:
- what drawbacks could be expected from changing the scheduler setting? (e.g. could it cause stability or performance issues with other services on the SLES/OES VM's that are tuned ?)
- Does this apply for NSS volumes running on XEN Netware guests too? e.g. would Netware guests also benefit with setting the scheduler - and is it at all possible with Netware?
As added note: One thing that we found also benefits performance is tunning the read-ahead values on the NSS volume itself depending on it's 'role' .
