Re: EVA5000 performance

How about some more into.

the c13t0d0 looks busy but busy is not neccessarily bad. If the requests are serviced then all is swell.

how about a sar -d 5 5

look at the avserv time. If low ( 1ms - 10ms ) then the requests are being serviced.

over 10ms on modern SANs are potentially suspect but if not consistant then no worries.

Re: EVA5000 performance

I think that the data provided is not enough. But the total requests/MB per second are low.

Why do you think that you could have a storage performace problem?

Check the IOWAIT (wa) operating system performance metric to identify if you possibly have a I/O related problem.

Poor coded or tuned applications can underutilize the storage.
