I am aware that mounting filesystems with noatime option greatly
increases speed.

I have tried to follow discussion on the pros and cons of using noatime.

I have however not been able to mount with the option relatime in centos 5.2.

But in a production db server, which is backed up by HP DP, is it
advisable to mount with noatime?

Anybody care to share their experience on it?
