In this paper we study the problem of how to maximize the throughput of the disk subsystem in a Video-on-Demand server based on a PC running Linux. The system also tries to minimize costs, so it is using ATA hard disks in a RAID configuration. A disk pump is responsible for retrieving high bandwidth streams (MPEG-2) from the storage subsystem. The disk pump(More)
