what's the performance of VSA On BL460C 10Gb NIC vsphere platform?

hi all,

IN my C7000 with 10Gb Felxfabric VC Module.  bl460c   (2cpu,32RAM,146G HDD)    I setup 3 bl460c G7 VSA node . configure cluster and volume  map the to another BL460c in theC7000 with RHEL6.6 initiator.

I write a 15GB huge file to the LUN. only  about  110MB/s    .is it right?

I'am afraid that customer will ask me why performance  is not 1000MB ?

I'm not familiar with any of those model terms, but 110MB/s is about the max you can get for a 1Gb connection.  My guess is that there is a limitation around something in the fabric set at 1Gb in that "flexFabric".  If this actually is a VSA install, I would also watch the performance counters in CMC when you do the transfer to see if something is holding the system back... Believe it or not, 100% CPU is often the cause of the constraint.
