Hello,

I am trying to determine the overhead used by Veritas when
making raw slices for oracele. Currently we allocate 102meg
raw slices in vol mgr. We use 102meg because oracle use 2-2.5%
for it's operations, thus giving the dba a 100meg raw data file.
Is this accurate though. I know Veritas has about a 4% overhead
when making ufs. Then ufs using another 10% for it's operations.
Is there a whitepaper on Veritas Overhead. I have done quite a bit
of searching with no answers.

Thanks for any insights.

Chuck
