I have purchased a FAS8020 2 node CDOT cluster. Only using it for SMB3 for HyperV.
I have created 2 aggregates, one on each shelf.
Do I need 2 SVMs with their volumes in each separate aggregate to spread the cpu load or will one SVM still spread the load across both nodes?
See The Solution
SVM does not perform any “load spreading” automatically. You can have volumes from multiple aggregates in the same SVM; but assigning your workload to these volumes is up to you as administrator.
Sorry I should have explained more.
I create a single SVM, with 2 volumes in separate aggregates assigned to different nodes. When a CPU intensive task like dedupe runs, does it use the cpu of the node hosting the aggregate?
