    ntfs block size

    We have a new server and we are installing windows 2000.
    I need to know what ntfs block size should i put, any idea?

    My database is a oltp environnement, the actual db_block_size we are using is 8192k, but we have a few tables that are experiencing chaining. We have oracle 8.1.7.3.

    I recommend database block size multiple or equal of ntfs block size.
    Best wishes!

    I wonder if you can really have db block sie smaller than ntfs block?

    If the disk partition is dedicated to datafile files, equivalent size will be the best choice.
