You are not even doing that because you are now arguing with industry
experts and not me.

Yea, so? The read head of the HDD still has to move across the
platter(s) to read one file if it is fragmented is what he meant. God,
you fucks are anal.

Another loser that has trouble grasping basic English and what he meant.

There is an app you can get that will fragment the HDD (can't remember
the name of it but will go find it) so get that app and then run HDTune
bench, then defrag the HDD and run it again.

I am not arguing with any "industry experts". I am merely pointing out
errors in quotations you have copied from some unknown source.
Even if the source of these comments is in fact someone with experience
and a job setting up or maintaining large databases, this does not
qualify him as an "industry expert". And even if he /is/ an industry
expert, that does not mean he is right in every point connected to his
job. Even experts get things wrong. And for any given opinion, you can
easily find a dozen "experts" with different views.
In summary, to make a database server fail due to fragmentation you
would have to try exceedingly hard to overload and misconfigure the
system, even if you use a badly designed database server on a badly
designed operating system, and badly fragment the disk. Maybe it takes
an "industry expert" to be able to achieve this.
