- NetApp's embedded operating system processes NFS requests from the network layer without any NFS daemons, and uses non-volatile memory to improve performance.
- All standard data protection features, including background RAID and media error scrubbing, software validated RAID checksumming, and double disk failure protection via double parity RAID (RAID-DP) were enabled during the test.
- The tested system was a failover cluster comprised of two nodes joined by a cluster interconnect (integrated on the NVRAM card).
- The cluster option was licensed and enabled.
- Each disk controller had two 2Gbit/s FC-AL ESH (Electronically Switched Hub) loops, one primary and one secondary. Only the primary loops were active.
- Each node was the owner of a single disk pool or "aggregate".
- Each aggregate was composed of five RAID-DP groups, each RAID-DP group was composed of 14 data disks and 2 parity disks.
- Within each aggregate, a flexible volume (utilizing DataONTAP FlexVol (TM) technology) was created to hold the SFS filesystem for that node.
- The F1 filesystem was striped across the disks in the aggregate on the primary loops of the first node. The F2 filesystem was striped across the disks in the aggregate on the primary loops of the second node.
- Each node was the owner of one filesystem, but the disks in each aggregate were dual-attached so that, in the event of a fault, they could be controlled by the other node via a secondary loop.
- Two spare disks were present on each node.
- Two disks on each node held the DataONTAP operating system and system files.
- All network ports were set to use jumbo frames (MTU=9000).
- Server tunings:
- - date 0801 -- set clock to 8:01am for reproducibility
- - options no_atime_on 1 -- to disable access time update
- - options minra 1 -- to minimize file read-ahead
