    Sorry for the double post - I accidentally posted in the SQL 2000 forum.[:$]
    We're implementing a RAID 10 array for the data portion of a VLDB, which is mainly used for random reads.
    Is there an optimal segment size I should be setting the array to? I've seen 64k being mentioned, and it makes sense given the size of an extent is 64k.
    Can anyone share their experience in this regard or offer any documented evidence as to what the optimal segment size is?
