As I sit here on a Sunday morning waiting for some disk issues to be resolved in my datacenter, I took the time to catch up on some pages I had marked for later reading. One was a post by Christo Kutrovsky from the Pythian Group, about aligning ASM disks on linux, to avoid misalignments due to odd default offsets in linux that might cause I/O for relatively small amounts of data to be inefficiently split across disks.

Also now I can't help but look at "Christo Kutrovsky" and think of Krusty the Clown, a.k.a. Herschel Krustofski.
