Baseline System Performance

Is there a recommendation on performing a system baseline in PerfAdv?  My customer would like to baseline a controller using IOPs per system and aggregate, throughput per interface, and loop metrics.

Re: Baseline System Performance

Run Perfomance Advisor and other tools on non-prod systems while hitting with other tools like 'hammer' local, and sio from client hosts.

Do not abuse production environs.

Enjoy abusing a NetApp !

Re: Baseline System Performance

Pls use the baseline feature of the thresholds where you have a new button starting DFM 4.0 in PA called suggest which will give you all this.

Like mean, median, min , max and 95th  percentile etc.

Re: Baseline System Performance

Adai -

Where will these baseline numbers come from ?

What kinds of loads should be generated for the system ?

Re: Baseline System Performance

The baseline data comes from the Performance Advisor data that are collected since PA was collecting default counter info at 1 min interval.

You dont have to generate any workloads, this is collected regularly based on the workloads that are already on the storage system.

Like the user reads/write or application read/write.
