Using a larger block size in a fixed block size file system leads to
ans is a
If block size is large then seek time is less (fewer blocks to seek) and disk performance is improved, but remember larger block size also causes waste of disk space.
Answer is A. Larger block size means less number of blocks to fetch and hence better throughput. But larger block size also means space is wasted when only small size is required.
SIR, please tell where I am wrong:
Let any disk then if block size is big the no. of blocks in that disk will be less but space will be utilized. If we have small small blocks in same space then there can be chance of more gaps and so poor space utilization as size of file is fixed. Throughput is related to no. of blocks access per unit time. so, is it like time will be more to access larger blocks???
