I have ZCM running on sles11 64 bit on a VMware VM.
The server has 3 vDisks.
The first is partitioned mainly for the OS in three partitions.
/boot, swap, LVM (/, /opt, /var, /usr)
Second disk 1 partition another LVM
/var/opt/novell/zenworks/database on fast 15k spindles on the SAN.
Third disk 1 partition another LVM
/var/opt/novell/zenworks/content-repo on slower disks.

The database and content-repo volumes are EXT3.

To speed up the database and the content-repo I want to use noatime,data=writeback as options in the fstab.

But my question is does either Sybase or ZCM use the atime attribute internally, or can I just disable these without breaking anything?

Are there any other tricks to speed up ZCM? (not that it is slow at the moment, but I just want it as fast as possible)
