IBM While disk tuning is arguably less exciting than CPU or memory tuning, it is a crucial component in optimizing server performance. Learn more about direct I/O, concurrent I/O, asynchronous I/O, and best practices for each method of I/O implementation.

Wow, who knew directio would spark such a flamewar! But seriously, I would enjoy giving AIX a shot if a machine came my way.

Just in case there are any gurus out there, I have noticed that a lot of cross-platform software distributions are much larger (in bytes) on AIX than on, say, Solaris or HP-UX. There is probably a reason for that, anyone know?
