Hi,

I am new to oracle installation layout and will be glad to get some help.
I have a new linux server 2.6.18-164.el5 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux and need to configure the disks layout for oracle database.

the server has 6 local disks.
2 disks for system.
4 disks*300gb in RAID 5. (Customer needs)
1 LUN based on EMC (500GB)
1 LUN based on EMC (5.4TB) for Oracle Backup.

The Oracle version is 10.2.0.5.0 64bit enterprise.

I need the guru help understanding what is the best solution for this kind of configuration.

Thanks.

    Well, first off, the best solution would involve oracle 11.2 --- seeing as how 10.2 is already out of support.

    Quantify best?

    Which metric measures best?

    Is low or high value better?
