DMX-3 track sizes and the accuracy of Host Connectivity Guide for Linux rev. A28 pages 44-50

Can anyone confirm the following two items for me?

1.  DMX-3 and above track sizes are 64KB in size

2.  The Host Connectivity Guide for Linux rev. A28 (Oct. 2011) page 44 states that four Symmetrix tracks is 128KB.  Is it just me, or does this entire section seem to have fallen woefully out-of-date in stating that four tracks = 128KB (old DMX-2 and prior eras) instead of four tracks = 256KB (current era)?

Thanks in advance for your help,

Tim

Yes, Since DMX3 1 track=64 KB, 1 cylinder =15 tracks = 960 KB =1920 blocks

Before DMX3 1 track=32 KB. 1 cylinder=15 tracks=480 KB =960 blocks
