FlexShare and the global io_concurrency option

Disks have a maximum number of concurrent I/O operations they can support; the limit varies according to the disk type. FlexShare limits the number of concurrent I/O operations per volume based on various values including the volume priority and the disk type.

For most customers, the default io_concurrency value is correct and should not be changed. If you have nonstandard disks or load, your system performance might be improved by changing the value of the io_concurrency option.

For more information about this option, see the na_priority(1) man page or contact technical support.
Attention: This option takes effect across the entire system. Use caution when changing its value and monitor system performance to ensure that performance is improved.
