Domino Disk Performance

So, today marks the first day that I've had a chance to play with our new Domino server.   Most of the hardware is pretty standard.   IBM 3650M2 hardware, 12GB of RAM and 2 quad core CPUs.

Usually, the performance bottleneck I run into is disk access.   Today, I'm trying some new hardware to see if we can eliminate that bottleneck.

Here are my first results:

This spike was the result of starting a compact -C on a database with a size of 1.6GB and 150,000 documents.  It took 2 minutes to complete.

I'll let you know how performance continues.
