SVM LIF Performance Bottlenecks Possible?

Hi,

 

We have several large, performance intensive NFS vols that are part of a new project, and were thinking of putting them all into the same SVM (named after the project) but are concerned that by doing so we will be performance bound by the single LIF of the SVM.  Would it make more sense to have break the vols up into separate SVMs, each with their own LIF, to prevent any sort of network contention?

 

Thanks,

~ Jon

Jon -

 

You could assign multiple LIFs on different physical ports to the SVM, and access the volumes using those multiple LIFs.


I hope this response has been helpful to you.
