- 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.
- 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 one filesystem, but the disks were dual-attached so that, in the event of a fault, they could be controlled by the other node via a secondary loop.
- The F1 filesystem was striped across both primary loops of the first node. The F2 filesystem was striped across both primary loops of the second node.
- Each filesystem was composed of two RAID-DP groups; each RAID-group was composed of 14 data disks and 2 parity disks.
- Two spare disks were present on each node.
- Server tunings:
- - date 0801 -- set clock to 8:01am for reproducibility
- - options no_atime_on 1 -- to disable access time update
