Node's Performance Capacity >.100%, but Aggregate's Performance Capacity is ~30%, latency is low

Do we have performance concern?

In last 4 days, The node's Performance Capacity is very high constantly reaches >100%, or even >150%, AFF/SDD aggregate's Performance Capacity is only about 30%. 

My understanding is Peformance Capacity is just telling you, you cannot add more workloads. Does that necessraily tell you if are having performance issue?

 

 

An application is slow. It is based on VM's and NFS datastore . But the Datastore volume seems okay, latency is not too high, only < 5ms. The latency graph of the volume doens't match with the slow response. 

 

So, we are not sure if we have resources contention, and if Node's Perfomance Capacity is indicating an  issue?

I guess you are referring to the Graph in OnCommand

100% will just suggest that from this point on, latency will increase exponentially

As I said, Node's performance capacity reached >150%, and last for many days, but Latency graph doesn't show too high, only about 5 ms/

 

Any other ideas?

just focus on latency

Please give output of:

::> set d -c off; qos statistics workload resource cpu show -node XXXXXXXXXXXX

::> qos statistics volume latency show -volume XXXXXXXX -vserver XXXXXXXXXXXX

::> qos statistics volume characteristics show -volume XXXXXXXXXXXXX -vserver XXXXXXXXXXXXXX

 

What application is this? Also I'd recommend upgrading to AIQUM 9.7 as you can add in your VM level. This will help you compare VM and filer latencies and IOPs.

Re: Node's Performance Capacity >.100%, but Aggregate's Performance Capacity is ~30%, latency is

Ok, so you're doing close to 3 GB/s in this cluster it looks like. That's pretty impressive. Most of those are writes. It looks like Exempt and Nwk_Exempt are probably the busiest, so I'm suspecting that's due to write workload. My honest feel from just those commands is, you are just doing quite a bit of work and are at a comfortable limit with what the controller can handle without adding more work.

 

If you want to open a case you can, or if you have a hostname/serial and perf archive I can take a deeper look at some actual numbers.

This is the approach I would like to see. I will send you a private message and send information you need, because I don't want to share the organization infor in the public.

 

Now, why are you saying we are doing close to 3 GB/s in this cluster? Is this because following output:

-total- - 159792 3479.28MB/s 22831B 43% 160

 

3Gb/s on this volume consider to be good? I checked several other volumes, they are all around 3Gb/s.

Re: Node's Performance Capacity >.100%, but Aggregate's Performance Capacity is ~30%, latency is

Gigabytes, not Gigabits. B vs b. Big difference (factor of 8)!.

 

That output is the overall throughput across the cluster.

 

And 3 GB/s honestly isn't bad, but I don't know how many nodes that is nor model #.
