:Adaptive Queuing settings in ESX for an EVA

Does anyone know what the following two parameters should be set to for an EVA8000?
QFullSampleSize and QFullThreshold ?

Re: :Adaptive Queuing settings in ESX for an EVA

So far I have not seen any values published for any EVA systems - even Google does not have much about these parameters.

I have a lot of EVA and VMware documents indexed in a search engine and not one mentions any of these parameters.

The VMware Knowledge Base has just two articles:
- Controlling LUN queue depth throttling in VMware ESX for 3PAR storage arrays
http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1008113

- Controlling LUN queue depth throttling in VMware ESX 3.5 Update 4
http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1010922
.

Thank you both for the added information. I had one of the documents already, but like you have been unable to find any info on these two parameters via Google or in HP's websites. Any additional thoughts or pointers will be gladly accepted

Marcus - where did you heard about these parameters? Vmware side? Maybe ask Vmware?

Yes it was the VMware guy and he said that the VMware document told him to contact that supplier of the storage array for these settings. Unfortunately, I have never heard of HP releasing anything on this matter.

I think you can rise support case on HP Eva - maybe it goes to storage guru with proper knowledge... :)
