SQL Log LUN Creation

I have my first Nimble array and ready to begin playing

 

Question:  I am setting up some tests and I have a SQL 2005 server (Win 2008).  I am ready to create a new LUN for the SQL Logs.  The ESXi 5.1 will connect to the LUN, not from within the guest O/S.

 

When I  create the LUN I can specify performance policy, should I use "SQL Server Logs (block 4k, comrpess yes, cache no)?  I was wondering whether its better to create a policy like this:  block 32k, compress yes, cache no? 

I am referring to this document: http://blogs.vmware.com/apps/2012/03/your-guide-to-virtualizing-sql-on-vsphere-part-1.html

 

Thanks,

Scott
