In VNX Block Storage Performance training course, attendees will gain thorough exposure to performance on the VNX Block platform with NXE OE for Block Release 32 and Unisphere. They will focus on the use of Unisphere Analyzer, Unisphere, and Navisphere Secure CLI to gather performance statistics, and the analysis of those performance statistics. This course also covers how to gather performance statistics from the VNX system, and the analysis of those performance statistics. Other topics include gathering performance statics from common host platforms and the use of those statistics in performance analysis. They will learn the performance implications of using VNX Block Replication Software (SnapView, VNX Snapshots, MirrorView, and SAN Copy). They will learn to analyze pre-captured data through in-depth discussions and extensive hands on lab exercises. This course currently supports VNX Block OE R32.
By attending VNX Block Storage Performance workshop, attendees will learn to:
- Define VNX Block performance using metrics and workload analysis
- Use Block performance tools for analysis and troubleshooting
- Define the performance implications of different disk and RAID types Define the performance implications of different disk and RAID types
- Identify Block-related performance considerations including FAST VP, FAST cache, and Data Compression
- Explain the performance considerations when using SnapView, SAN Copy and MirrorView
Knowledge and skills associated with:
- VNX models, components, management options, and features
- Data integrity and availability features found in a VNX Block storage system
- VNX Block performance, storage configuration, and provisioning concepts
- PowerPath performance, transparent recovery and availability features in an open systems host environment
- SAN terminology, features, architecture, theory of operations, and management for Fibre Channel FCoE, and iSCSI SANs
- VNX SnapView, VNX Snapshots, VNX MirrorView, and VNX SAN Copy operation, terminology, and performance
This course is intended for individuals who will gather and interpret performance-related information from VNX Block storage systems and hosts, and analyze that information. Performance analysis is useful in the planning stages of an implementation, and is useful for troubleshooting real or perceived performance problems.
