- 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 built-in cluster interconnect.
- The cluster option was licensed and enabled.
- Each node contains one BCM1250 processor, each with two cores (total 4 CPUs).
- Each disk controller had a single 1Gbit/s FC-AL loop.
- Each node was the owner of one filesystem, but these disks were dual-attached to loops from both nodes in the cluster so that, in the event of a fault, they could be controlled by the other node.
- The F1 filesystem was striped across the loop of the first node. The F2 filesystem was striped across the loop of the second node.
- Each filesystem was composed of 2 RAID-DP groups; each RAID-DP group was composed of 8 data disks and 2 parity disks.
- One spare disk was present on each node.
- 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
