- Each file system was configured on a Raid-0 volume with an 8k stripe unit size.
- Each file system contained 12 disks.
- Disks enclosed in a total of 10 Unisys JBOD Disk Array Enclosure (ESM702-JBD), with only 8 (out of 10) disks used in each of the last 2 enclosures.
- This was accomplished by zoning the disks with a Brocade 2400 FC Switch.
- The system benchmarked was a failover cluster of two nodes.
- Each node was the primary controller of four file systems, but the
- disks were dual attached and could be controlled by the other node in the event of a failure of the primary node.
- The nodes were connected via 2 crossover cables to two 10/100Mb Ethernet ports available on each node.
- These ports are separate from the GbE ports used by the clients. This provides signalling between the nodes, allowing for the detection of a node failure.
- The F1-4 file systems were controlled by the first node.
- The F5-8 file systems were controlled by the second node.
- File systems were exported with the following options:
- The number of nfsd process was limited to 128 by using the rpc.nfsd command.
- Because of a command behaviour issue, the user must first specify zero (0) processes and then repeat the command specifying 128 processes.
- The following products are included:
- VERITAS Volume Manager 3.2
- VERITAS File System 3.4
- The Qlogic 2312 controller used is a dual port controller. Though there are
- 5 controllers in each unit, for a total of 10 ports per node, only 4 ports per node were used, one port was used out of each controller, utilizing 4 controllers per node.
- The Intel 82546 GbEthernet controller is a dual port controller, however only one port was used.
