Array Tuning Best Practices - Dell

High Performance Storage Tier

(found under Storage Array - Change - Cache Settings) I'm reading that for sequential workloads, use 32K, and for Random, use 16K. For mixed, try starting at 16K. I believe this can be changed on the fly. I think the default is 4KB.
