It's HP StorageWorks Command View EVA V3.1

Re: evaperf for EVA3000

EVAperf was made available during the Command View V4.1 timeframe. As it does not depend on CV, there is some chance that it works if you can get hold of the old kit.

Re: evaperf for EVA3000

i tried to search for older evaperf and got this info :

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&objectID=c00578056&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

it mentioned it will support controller with firmware 3.028. so i am wondering if anyone who has used evaperf with firmware 3.010 or below before.

Re: evaperf for EVA3000

I'm sure this will come back from HP as an "unsupported" configuration - not to mention the fact that I came across some "known bugs" in earlier versions of EVA Perf that caused certain statistics to be mis-reported. So: you may well be able to get your configuration to run and even produce what looks like good output, but I wouldn't trust its accuracy at all.

Re: evaperf for EVA3000

TKC,

3.010 is very old, you should be planning to upgrade to 3110 ?

evaperf is is part of the Command view install, only issue I don't think 3.010 is supportd with 6.02.

Problem never ends, you must know how to fix it

Re: evaperf for EVA3000

ya, upgrading the firmware is one of my option but not now. i wish to check if anyone can get evaperf working with 3.010. if so, i can give it a try though there's no support statement from hp.

Re: evaperf for EVA3000

Hi,

I seem to recall there being changes to the metadata structure on an EVA between VCS 3.010 and 3.028.

I suspect that will prevent evaperf working properly on the older version...

Cheers,

Rob

Re: evaperf for EVA3000

i am planning to upgrade the firmware. anyone can tell me if i can directly upgrade to the latest or need to move to revision 3.028 first?

Re: evaperf for EVA3000

Hi,

You need to be at 3.028 before going to 3.110.

My old thread here:

http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=1113007

will probably help...

Cheers,

Re: evaperf for EVA3000

When upgrading from 3.010 to 3.028 it might be necessary to call a HP technican to do a meta-data scan. When I was organizing similar upgrades, this required loading a special firmware image. Also, the disk drive firmware need to be upgraded as well.

Before that is done, the whole SAN environment need to be analyzed and a plan created. If the system is that old, you most likely will have to upgrade the switches and servers as well.
