Partitioned ssd in aerospike.conf


Is it possible to configure storage-engine with device if device is the logical part of ssd? For instance

storage-engine device {
                device /dev/sda3
                write-block-size 128K

if sda3 is the partition of physical sda? It seems that it’s not working. Am I right?



Aerospike like any other process works over OS block device. A partition over physical /dev/sda should work. The configuration you have looks good.

But be aware the io capability of the drive is not going to change so you need to be careful while sharing drive with some other IO intensive requirement, This could effect Aerospike performance …
