SPECsfs97_R1.v3 Result


 Hewlett-Packard : HP Integrity rx6600 Server                
 SPECsfs97_R1.v3 = NC (Overall Response Time =  NC)

   SPEC has determined that this result was not in compliance with the SPEC
   SFS97_R1 run and reporting rules. Specifically, the result did not meet
   the requirement that all software components must be generally available
   within six months of result publication due to the unavailability of
   of required patches.

                                Notes and Tuning

<> There are 6 HP StorageWorks 4/8 SAN Switches connected to the SUT
<> (one per fibre channel port).  Each SAN switch connects to one controller
<> of 12 HP StorageWorks 1500cs Modular Smart Arrays. Each of the 12 
<> MSA1500s has dual active fibre channel controllers. Each MSA1500 has two 
<> Modular Smart Array 30 Disk Enclosures containing 14 disks each.
<> Each LUN is carved from an MSA30's 14 physical disks in a RAID-5 
<> configuration with 64KB stripes, 4 LUNs per MSA30.
<> There are 8 LUNs per MSA1500, four assigned to each of the MSA 1500 
<> controllers. There is one test filesystem per logical disk. 
<> Each client mounts two LUNs from each MSA1500 (one from each controller).
<> VxFS is used for the OS and test filesystems (F1-F96).
<> Each test filesystem log is 32k entries, mounted noatime (no access time update
<> except when they correspond to updated to ctime or mtime)
