Relation of BUFFERS and FILES ? (Miscellaneous)

posted by cordata(R), 29.03.2018, 23:12

Hi, I wonder what is the optimum number of BUFFERS and FILES for a given DOS application? FILES seems to make sense, the largest number of files that will be open at once. But what about BUFFERS ? Should this be the same number? Larger? Smaller ? From what I can gather a Buffer is 512 bytes corresponding to a sector.

Thanks for any insight or a pointer to a web site describing how they work.
