Best practice? 2 HA-Pair Load Balancing

G'day all

 

Questions relating to;

 

cdot-8.3.1p2

4 node cluster

2 x V6240 (high utilisation) 153%

2 x V3250

 

 

Currently having some issues with load balancing and node over utilisation, looking at OCUM & monitoring "Statistics" at the Cli looks like it is the CPU/IOPS

 

Question for you in your experiences what is the preffered/best options/config for load balancing both your individual HA pair's and cluster as a whole.

 

I have done alot of reading in relation to DNS balancing and LIF Balancing, however I beleive I'm looking for a different method.

 

So currently I have high utilisation on my 1st pair (V6240) nodes, i'm thinking at this stage i should just be migating the high IOP volumes to the "under-utilised" nodes 2nd pair (v3250) and balance the iops out across the 4 nodes more evenly.

 

So from your experiences is this sounding along the lines of what should sort my issues or am i way off ?

 

Any suggestions would be appreciated thanks
