MetroCluster configuration verification

You can prevent performance issues for mirrored workloads in a MetroCluster over IP configurations by ensuring that the MetroCluster configuration is set up correctly. You can also improve workload performance by changing the configuration or upgrading software or hardware components.

For information specific to your MetroCluster over IP setup, see ETERNUS AX/HX Series Manual Page.

You can compare your MetroCluster configuration to the requirements in ETERNUS AX/HX Series Manual Page to determine whether changing or upgrading components in your MetroCluster configuration might improve workload performance. This comparison can help you answer the following questions:

  • Are the controllers appropriate for your workloads?

  • Do you need to upgrade your ISL bundles to a larger bandwidth to handle more throughput?

  • Can you adjust the buffer-to-buffer credits (BBC) on your switches to increase the bandwidth?

  • If your workloads have high write throughput to solid state drive (SSD) storage, do you need to upgrade your FC-to-SAS bridges to accommodate the throughput?
