There are many blog posts and best practice articles extolling the virtues of placing the SQL Server data file on one hard drive and the transaction log on another. The reason given is that that the database file will be experiencing random reads and writes while the transaction log will only have sequential writes.
But what if you have hundreds of databases? Is there a true performance benefit to placing hundreds of transaction log files on a separate disk? If multiple transaction logs are being written to, then I would think the transaction log writes would be just as random as the database writes.
