- NetApp's embedded operating system processes NFS requests from the network layer without any NFS daemons, and uses non-volatile memory to improve performance.
- The tested system was a failover cluster comprised of two nodes joined by a X1925A cluster interconnect.
- The cluster option was licensed and enabled.
- The memory size includes 6 GB in each node of the GF960c and 32 GB in the HDS 9980V.
- Each disk controller had two FC connections and both were active.
- Each node was the owner of one filesystem and each had the ability to take over the partner filesystem.
- The F1 filesystem was striped across all loops of the first node. The F2 filesystem was striped across all loops of the second node.
- In the event of a power outage, the UPS for the HDS 9980V has enough power to flush the entire cache to disk.
- Server tunings:
- date 0801 -- set clock to 8:01am for reproducibility
- options minra 1 -- to minimize file read-ahead
- options no_atime_on 1 -- to disable access time update
- NetApp and WAFL are registered trademarks and "Data ONTAP" and "Network Appliance" are trademarks of Network Appliance, Inc. in the United States and other countries.
