A common belief is that Novell NetWare volumes do not become fragmented and that defragmentation is not important. This is simply not true. There are many good reasons to defragment volumes. For example: after adding a new volume segment to a volume, the new segment contains no user data. By defragmenting the volume, data is redistributed evenly across all volume segments. System administrators can now measure the performance affects that fragmentation causes.
Novell has recognized that defragmenting the Directory Tables has an effect upon volume performance. See Novell TID 10027705. Starting with NetWare 5 SP4, Novell has improved volume mount time. Part of this improvement is due to "The directory table layout for new volumes was optimized to give better locality on disk. This improves the speed that the data can be read off the disk"
How often have you seen the following:
. High server utilization -> Defragment the Directory Tables.
. Volume mount time increases. Read more here.
. Vrepair run time increases. Read more here.
. Open, closing and modifying files takes longer.
. Backup performance decreases.
. Backup tapes store less and less data per tape.
. Increasing delay times to load large applications like Microsoft Office.
These are just a few of the problems solved by defragmenting and redistributing data on Netware volumes.
. Defragments Primary and Secondary Directory Tables.
. Defragments Primary and Secondary Extended Directory Tables.
. Defragments Block Suballocation Tables.
. Defragments File Data.
. Defragments Extended File Data.
. Support for moving files which have not been accessed for a while towards the end of the volume.
. Support for moving deleted files which have not yet been purged towards the end of the volume.
. Support for changing the order of Directory Table entries.
. Support for changing the order of Block Suballocation Table entries
