New !! Open unofficial storage performance thread

Hello everybody,

the old thread seems to be sooooo looooong - therefore I decided (after a discussion with our moderator oreeh - thanks Oliver -) to start a new thread here.

Oliver will make a few links between the old and the new one and then he will close the old thread.

Thanks for joining in.

Anybody else testing a Flash Array?  I'm not seeing anyone posting anything close to this.  Thx

We should probably use a different test for All Flash Arrays (AFA). These Arrays often have inline dedupe and compression, some of them get decreased performance when disks fill up above a certain level and many of them will suffer from less performance after a test has been running for a few hours.

With the test files provided for iometer in this thread the tested data sets are too small and for many AFAs will only let the test run against a memory cache. The data that iometer inputs in the data sets are not random and inline dedupe may affect the results.

A newer version of IOmeter supports randomized data files and we should probably create a new thread with a new test set. I'm however not sure a generic test like this will be enough. The problem is that a test should run through all active paths agains the AFA and would maybe require multiple VMs on multiple hosts.

hi Guys

Just wondering if anyone has the .icf file that will work with the io analyser ovf template. I have managed to import what i thought is the correct icf file however it does not report back to the web console. Seems to work ok if i run it manually

Hello together,

we are implemented a Datacore HyperConverged Virtual SAN with two identical Fujitsu RX 2540 M2 with 256GB RAM + 2*12Core CPUs (48 Logical CPUs) + 2*300GB SAS for Local DCS Installation and 2*400GB SLC SSD + 12*600GB SAS HDD for VMWare Datastore. We have 2*10GB NICs with each 2 Ports each Server for 2*Mirror and 2*FrontEnd iSCSI Ports. Each Datacore Server have 40 GB RAM Cache

Hypervisor is an VMWare ESXi 6.5 the lastest Version an Datacore SanSymphony V 10 PSP6 Update 2
