DVS Systems

We have experience of DVS Systems slowing down rendering due to additional metadata traffic.

We would advise users to set the following options in general.prefs

You can expect a small to moderate increase of rendering speed and reduction in metadata traffic over networks.

Set maxPreallocation to 0

   caches
   {
       fragmentationTest
       {
           activeV2 false
           level 1
       }
       maxPreallocation 0
       paintAutoCleanUpHours 5
       testTimeInterval 600
   }

SAN Based Caches
Please note that this setting should only be used on SAN systems running the DVS Stornext File System

You can also disable 'chunking' of data

asyncWrite
   {
       enable false
       chunkMB 30
   }

Chunk Data
Data Chunking is the process of breaking up large files into seperate blocks of data to be transferred. This can be a benefit to some systems that have low hard-drive buffers
