Creating a set of load-sharing mirrors

You can create a set of one or more load-sharing mirrors to a read-write volume to reduce the amount of work that a volume would otherwise have to do.

About this task

This is useful for frequently read but infrequently updated data. An example might be shared binary files. You can set up one or more load-sharing mirrors to a volume that is mounted at the /bin directory. Client requests to read the binaries on that volume are routed to the load-sharing mirrors, not to the read-write volume.
