NetApp recommends validating the latency and throughput of your specific network environment to determine the impact it has on FabricPool performance.
Starting in ONTAP 9.4, an object store profiler is available through the ONTAP CLI. You can test latency and throughput performance of object stores before you attach them to FabricPool aggregates.
Note: The external capacity tier must be added to ONTAP before it can be used with the object store profiler.
Note: External capacity tiers do not provide performance similar to that found on the performance tier (typically gigabytes per second).
