How much RAM is recommended for GenesisRX and Genesis UX RAID arrays and systems?

Scale Logic recommends 6-8 GB od RAM per RAID.

Best practice is to create initialized RAID-arrays (RAID 6i, RAID 7.3i) for max performance and to set cache size as follows :

  • 4 GB for RAID-arrays up to 12 HDD
  • 4-8 GB for RAID-arrays from 12 to 16 HDD
  • 8-16 GB for RAID-arrays from 16 to 24 HDD
  • 16-24 GB for RAID-arrays from 24 to 32 HDD
  • 24GB for RAID-arrays from 32HDD
