- 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 an active-active failover cluster comprised of two nodes joined by a cluster interconnect (integrated on the NVRAM card).
- The cluster option was licensed and enabled.
- Each node had 2 cpus (2 cores, 2 chips, 1 core/chip).
- Each disk controller had two 4Gbit/s capable FC-AL ports, each connected to an ESH (Electronically Switched Hub) loop (running in 2Gbit/s mode). All four FC-AL ports on each node were active during the test and each controlled 28 disks.
- Each node was the owner of a single disk pool or "aggregate".
- Each aggregate was composed of seven RAID-DP groups, each 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 owned by the first node, using a variable size striping mechanism. The F2 filesystem was striped across the disks in the aggregate owned by the second node, using the same variable size striping mechanism.
- 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 an alternate loop.
- A separate flexible volume resided on the aggregate of each node held the Data ONTAP operating system and system files.
- All network ports were set to use jumbo frames (MTU=9000).
- Server tunings:
- - vol options vol1 no_atime_on 1 -- to disable access time update
- - vol options vol1 minra 1 -- to minimize file read-ahead
