The question of replacing a single-density, two-channel, two-controller disk system with a cheaper, plug-compatible, dual-density, single-channel system having the same capacity is considered. An analytical model is explored to examine the effect of such a replacement on average response time, that is, the time between issuing an I/O request and completion of the request. Queueing theory is used to obtain curves of response time versus arrival rate, and the results are compared with corresponding curves obtained by a simulation model.
