If storage have 24 NVMe SSD,

Customer want' using CIFS Prototol, and Every controller have two 10Gb SFP+ be their interface,

I am consider two solution

1. Use all the 24 disk partition to crate one Aggregate, and one flexVolume, and create a SVM  that have four lif,every controller have two lif,and use DNS Run roubin to load sharing

2.create two aggregate,and one FlexGroup accross the two aggregate, and create a SVM  that have four lif,every controller have two lif,and use DNS Run roubin to load sharing

 

Which will better in performance?

The second cause the first doesn't really make sense on an AFF system, IMHO.  although people do it.    Only real reason to do it is if you need a single giant lun that exceeds the capacity of a single aggr. 

 

And by using Flexgroups you'd be able to use both controllers, as well as multiple processes across each controller (# depends on how many member volumes the FG has.
