VLS performance


We have recently acquired a VLS9000 and we are trying to get the maximum performance.

The VLS9000 has two nodes with an storage capacity of 80TB (40Terabytes per node) and each node has two 4Gb Fibre Channel ports to be connected to our SAN, but we don't know how many drives can work simultaneously without experiencing a descent of performance.

Maybe 6 drives per port will reach the maximum performance? In this case, we will have 12 drives working simultaneously and it is possible that the VLS CPU can not support it. Any help will be grateful.

Thank you very much.
