- The system under test is an ONStor Bobcat NAS Gateway in front of a
- 3PAR InServ S800 Storage Server.
- The ONStor Bobcat NAS Gateway has no NVRAM anywhere in the filer.
- All updates are written to external stable storage on 3PAR Storage
- Server before acknowledging the client. Memory caches
- within an ONStor NAS Gateway are effectively write-through caches.
- The ONStor Bobcat NAS Gateway contains two BCM1250 processors each with
- two cores (total 4 CPUs). All network protocol and filesystem operations
- are performed by these processors.
- The ONStor Bobcat NAS Gateway has one network controller with four Gigabit
- ethernet connections, all connected to the same network. A custom FPGA
- is used to calculate the CRC for TCP. Jumbo frames were not used.
- The ONStor Bobcat NAS Gateway has one disk controller with two 2 Gbps FC
- ports. All ports are managed by one core of a PMC-Sierra RM9200 CPU with
- 512 MB of memory and a QLOGIC ISP2312 FC controller.
- The two FC controller ports on the ONStor Bobcat NAS Gateway were
- connected to a 16 port fibre channel switch (McData Sphereon 4500).
- Each 3PAR Controller Node had two ports connected to the same fibre
- channel switch.
- The 3PAR S800 Storage Server is a fibre-channel-attached, block-level
- storage array. The 3PAR S800 was configured as a single array with two
- 2,400 MHz 3PAR Controller Nodes.
- Each Controller Node of the 3PAR InServ S800 includes 8 GB of
- data cache (16 GB total). The InServ S800 has an additional 2 GB
- of control cache (CPU memory) per Controller Node.
- Write-caching occurs in the disk subsystem only.
- There are redundant lead-acid batteries supporting each 3PAR
- Controller Node. These batteries power the node during a power
- failure, saving all cache contents to an internal drive.
- Booting after a power failure initiates a recovery process that
- recovers cache contents from the internal drives.
- The 3PAR Controller Nodes are configured with "common provisioning groups"
- which configure and dedicate portions of physical storage from a common
- pool of undedicated capacity upon write operations.
- The ONStor NAS Gateway created 16 filesystems (or "volumes" in ONStor
- terminology). Each volume was written to eight TPVV's, "Thin
- Provisioned Virtual Volume", on the 3PAR InServ.
- TPVVs were configured to grow using a RAID-0 relationship and to
- stripe across 60 disks.
- Automatic snapshot scheduling was disabled and data cache read-ahead
- was disabled on the NAS Gateway.
