Clariion Disk Format




Disk Format

The Clariion Formats the disks in Blocks. Each Block written out to the disk is 520 bytes in size. Of the 520 bytes, 512 bytes is used to store the actual DATA written to the block. The remaining 8 bytes per block is used by the Clariion to store System Information, such as a Timestamp, Parity Information, Checksum Data.

Element Size – The Element Size of a disk is determined when a LUN is bound to the RAID Group. In previous versions of Navisphere, a user could configure the Element Size from 4 blocks per disk 256 blocks per disk. Now, the default Element Size in Navisphere is 128. This means that the Clariion will write 128 blocks of data to one physical disk in the RAID Group before moving to the next disk in the RAID Group and write another 128 blocks to that disk, so on and so on.

Chunk Size – The Chunk Size is the amount of Data the Clariion writes to a physical disk at a time. The Chunk Size is calculated by multiplying the Element Size by the amount of Data per block written by the Clariion.

128 blocks x 512 bytes of Data per block = 65,536 bytes of Data per Disk. That is equal to 64 KB. So, the Chunk Size, the amount of Data the Clariion writes to a single disk, before writing to the next disk in the RAID Group is 64 KB.

Is it possible to reformat a 300GB FC 512bps DMX drive to 520bps and use it in a clariion?

I've been wanting to do this wedding dresses for a while, but I wasn't sure how to change the color of their dresses, but I finally figured it out. Anyways, we've all seen their official wedding dress, but I wanted to know which one would make the prettiest wedding dress if they were all turned white so I made these picks and the countdown. I'll make an article when I'm done. Maybe I might make a countdown with the real DP wedding dresses, unless that has already been done.
