Dang...I retract my question.  A little more experimenting and I realize...this really -is- unsupported.

Well, I hope someday in the future multiple database files will be supported.
I think it'd help the performance of my caches.  Thanks all!

Yeah, I'm not trying to debate that filesystem is faster than raw disk.  It's just not really an option for me.
Heck, one of the caches I'm running is completely virtualized.  Sorry, no raw disk there.

That's why I'm asking about files...did your testing have anything to say about one file versus many?

Go for raw instead!

Now with raw i can push 20 Gbit/s
From a single sever with fusion-io drive. With storage files we "only" manage to push around 11 Gbit/s

We use 900GB cache storage

I've already noticed ATS tends to slow down a bit when using database files above 2GB...but it got me thinking.

Does anyone know which would be more efficient: 2 database files at 2GB each...or 4 database files at 1GB each?

Thanks In Advance,
