We'd Like Your Input for Future Topics

by Frequent Contributor on ‎2012-05-22 03:59 PM

We'd love to hear any topic ideas you may have for Tech OnTap. 

Are there any burning issues you are dealing with and want to see covered in future issues?  Or a deeper dive into a specific NetApp product?  Or maybe even something we have never even considered.  How about subjects you'd like us to cover in our News Show and webcast series?

We want to hear all of your ideas.

I would like to see more information about deeper insight in to WAFL and how it really managed 4KB blocks….with and without flash cache.

Call it wonders of WAFL or something. Things to cover would be better explained with an example scenario such as

· Oracle / SQL writing a sequential stream of IO – Step by step insight in to how WAFL handles that data commit to the actual sectors on spindles and the processes involved around it

· Oracle / SQL writing a random stream of IOs - Step by step insight in to how WAFL handles that data commit to the actual sectors on spindles and the processes involved around it

· Oracle SQL overwriting a random set of blocks – how it works from start to finish and how WAFL facilitates that….

Cheers

Hi Chanaka,

Thank you for your input. This is definitely one of the topics we have lined up for our Back to Basics series.  I will be sure to let you know once we are ready to publish the article on WAFL.

Thanks,

Mina

How about a series of how to’s for onCommand?

Specifically how to use onCommand to run performance reports and manage snapmirror and snapvault.

The onCommand suite is very overwhelming.

Also a maybe a look into the differences/benefits of using cluster mode over 7-mode.

We just bought a new cluster in 7 mode recently but for our new upgrade we will researching the new cluster setup.

Thanks

Maybe someone will be brave enough to take on a 'politically incorrect' subject of fragmentation & reallocation? The length of this thread proves the point that a reliable source of information in this area is really needed https://communities.netapp.com/thread/6530

I'm interested in Chanaka's topic, though we run mysql in SAN environment.

It's a particular interest for me to know how to configure vol /  lun for "mysql slave" configuration. mysql replication is a single threaded and basically SAN attached host  latency is what you want to lower here ..
