31Dlaczego Fibre Channel? Gigabit Bandwidth Now - 1 Gbs today, soon 2 and 4GbsHigh Efficiency - FC has very little overheadMultiple Topologies - Point-to-point, Arbitrated loop, FabricScalability - from Point-to-Point FC scales to complex FabricsLonger cable lengths and better connectivity than existing SCSI technologiesFibre Channel is an ISO and ANSI standard
32Wysoka przepustowość Storage Area Networks today provide 1.06Gbs today2.12Gbs this year4.24Gbs in the futureMultiple Channels expand bandwidthi.e.:800 Mbyte/s
33Topologie FC Point-to-Point 100MByte/s per connection Just defines connection between storage system and host

37So how do these choices impact my MPI application performance ? Let‘s find it out by running ...Micro Benchmarks to measure basic network parameters like latency and bandwidthNetperfPALLAS MPI-1 BenchmarkReal MPI ApplicationsESI PAM-CrashESI PAM-FlowDWD / RAPS Local Model
38Benchmark HW Setup2 Nodes HP N4600 each with 8 processors running HP-UX 11iLots of NW Interfaces per node4 * 100BT Ethernet4 * Gigabit Ethernet Copper1 * Gigabit Ethernet Fibre1 * HyperFabric 1Point-to-point connections, no switches involvedJ6000 benchmarks were run on a 16 node cluster at the HP Les Ulis benchmark center (100BT and HyperFabric 1 switched networks)HyperFabric 2 benchmarks were run on the L3000 cluster at the HP Richardson benchmark center.
39Jumbo Frame Same Performance with Fibre and Copper GigaBit ? GigaBit Ethernet allows the packet size (aka Maximal Transfer Unit MTU) to be increased from 1500 Bytes to 9000 Bytes. Can be done anytime by invoking lanadmin –M 9000 <nid>Can be applied to both Copper and Fibre GigaBit interfaces.
41What is the Hyper Messaging Protocol (HMP) ? Standard MPI Messaging with remote nodes goes through the TCP/IP stack. Massive Parallelism with clusters is limited by OS overhead for TCP/IP. Example: PAM-Crash MPP on a HP J6000 HyperFabric workstation cluster (BMW data set)25% System Usage / CPU on a 8x2 cluster45% System Usage / CPU on a 16x2 clusterThis overhead is OS related and has nothing to do with NW interface performance.
42What is HMP ?HMP Idea: Create a shortcut path for MPI applications in order to bypass some of the TCP/IP overhead of the OSApproach: Move the device driver from OS kernel into the application. This requires direct HW access privileges.Now available with HP MPI 1.7.1Only for HyperFabric HW
43MPI benchmarking with the PALLAS MPI-1 benchmark (PMB) PMB is an easy-to-use MPI benchmark for measuring key parameters like latency and bandwidthCan be downloaded fromOnly 1 PMB process per node was used to make sure that NW traffic is not mixed with SMP traffic. Unlike the netperf test this is not a throughput scenario.

89macierze dyskowe HP StorageWorks rodzina XProdzina EVANOTE:THIS SLIDE POSITIONS OUR LONGTERM STRATEGIC PRODUCTSHP StorageWorks Array PortfolioHP StorageWorks MSA family—is ideal for small and medium business (SMB) customers and enterprise departments looking to make the first step toward external storage consolidation and SAN. Typical customers tend to believe investment protection critical, are price sensitive, and have moderate concerns about scalability. The MSA family is a perfect solution for customers with deployed Smart Array controllers and/or ProLiant Servers because it is built with HP Smart Array technology and features. With the MSA family and its unique DtS (DAS to SAN) migration technology, customer can easily move from internal ProLiant server storage to external storage and even SAN, leveraging common disk drives, management tools, data and technology. The MSA family consists of three products (MSA30, MSA500, and MSA1000) as well as optional server/ storage bundles. The MSA family delivers super simplicity and all the cost savings of consolidated storage. (MSA family – Easy, Safe, Affordable)HP StorageWorks EVA family—is ideal for mid-range and enterprise customers that require high availability, but not at the same level as the XP. They can tolerate some unavailability. They may want an identical remote copy of the data, for instance, but they have a greater tolerance for the amount of time to restore. These are customers who do not buy NonStop servers or high-end Superdomes. The EVA is an outstanding solution for customers who are looking for enterprise-class capabilities at a more cost effective price. Where TCO is very important to them and on-going management costs are very important. The EVA family is very simple to use and highly automated enabling customers to manage more storage/admin compared to any other array subsystem on the market, providing the best TCO. (EVA family – Enterprise-class that’s powerfully-simple)HP StorageWorks XP family – is ideal for enterprise customers requiring the highest level of scalability, availability, Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity solutions, and guaranteed uptime service levels. The level of service provided here could be compared to the level of service from our Nonstop severs or high-end Superdome servers. The XP is an excellent solution for customers with applications than cannot afford any downtime—‘bullet proof’ if you will and are willing to pay the cost to implement that level of service. Their business demands this level of service. The XP also supports the largest number of OSs and offers very robust solutions. Plus you can mange up to 149TB in one box with one interface that controls it all. (XP family - Xceptional availability, scalability and throughput)It’s a matter of choice - we have customers who clearly understand this and they own MSAs, EVAs and XPs—because they have different needs within their business.rodzina MSAPrzepustowośćZawsze dostępne<165 TBKonsolidacja Data center + disaster recoveryAplikacje typu Oracle/SAP o największych wymaganiachHP-UX, Windows, + 20 innych włączając mainframeWyjątkowe TCO<72 TBKonsolidacja pamięci masowych + disaster recoveryUproszczenie przez wirtualizacjęWindows, HP-UX, Linux i inne systemy UnixoweKonsolidacja niskim kosztem<24 TBWEB, Exchange, SQLprosty DAS-to-SAN (ProLiant)Windows, Linux, Netware i inneSkalowalność

This translates to an aggregation of backplane throughput of 15 GB/s.The XP architecture is highly redundant with no single point-of-failure. Redundant components and online firmware upgrades keep the array up and running, and ensure that critical data is available for use.This architecture is also highly efficient. The host side (CHIP) processes cache hits, checks access rights, and links protocols, so server requests are processed and handled quickly.Channel Host Interface Process (CHIP) is a PCB used for data transfer control between the host and cache memory.Array Control Process (ACP) is a PCB used for data transfer control between disk drives and cache memory. Four ports per PCB are mounted. Ports are controlled by their respective dedicated microprocessors and data is transferred concurrently between ports and disk drive.Cache memory is nonvolatile memory (battery backed up) and write data is duplicated so that data loss is not caused even when a failure of one component occurs in power supply or PCB.Shared memory is nonvolatile memory (battery backed up) used to store cache directories and disk control information. The required shared memory varies with the size of cache and number of LDEVs.cache and shared memory128 GB

The array can read from either set of identical information. RAID 0/1 results in 50% efficiency of usable storage compared to raw capacity.RAID 1 4 data + 4 mirrored data, doubles the maximum size of a RAID 1. For certain operating systems, having a smaller number of larger capacity stripes makes configuring the storage easier and simpler.RAID 5 3 data + 1 parity drive configuration. This results in 75% efficiency of raw storage.RAID 5 7 data + 1 parity configuration. This configuration improves the storage efficiency to 87.5% of usable compared to raw storage.RAID 5 6 data + 2 parity configuration. This configuration improves the fault tolerance. Two drives from one group can fail and data is still available. Trade-off is slightly lower write performance.This RAID type can also properly be called RAID 6.Scheduled to be available for 2nd release.All RAID types can be configured in the same XP array at the same time.RAID level 1 is a combination of RAID levels 0 and 1.The array is first set up as a group of mirrored pairs (RAID 1), then striped (RAID 0). A RAID level 0/1 array done in this manner can sustain multiple drive failures, as long as both drives of a mirrored pair do not fail at the same time. The probability of this occurring is very low.Performance is very good with RAID 0/1 arrays, and redundancy is also very high, but it comes at the cost of additional disk drives.RAID 5 uses block level striping and distributed parity. RAID 5 distributes the parity over all of the drives to increase performance by decreasing the bottleneck to a single drive. RAID 5 parity is used for fault tolerance.Write PerformanceRAID 1 writes require 2 I/Os (the same data written twice)—RAID 1 is the fastest write performing RAID type.RAID 5 (3D+1P) and RAID 5 (7D+1) writes require 4 I/Os (1-read old data, 2-read old parity, 3-write new data, 4-write new parity)—RAID 5 write performance can be as low as one half the performance of RAID 1 writes.RAID 5 (6D+2P) writes require 6 I/Os (1-read old data, 2-read old parity , 3-read old parity, 4-write new data, 5-write new parity, 6-write new parity)—RAID 5 (6D+2P) write performance can be as low as one third the performance of RAID 1 writes.Read PerformanceThe read performance of all RAID types is similar.The XP disk arrays automatically use a spare drive when a disk failure occurs, making the time of degraded protection small.After the failed drive is replaced the data is rebuilt and the spare drive is free.DataDataDataDataDataMirrorDataDataDataDataMirrorDataParityDataDataMirrorDataDataMirrorDataDataMirrorDataParity 1MirrorParityParity 2Efficiency50%75%87.5%WritePerformanceReadModifyRead +Modify +Write +FaultTolerance1 of 4+1 of 21 of 82 of 8

103Online firmware update Online firmware update without any host ports going downEach CHIP has multiple processor modules. Each processor module contains a pair of microprocessorsOne microprocessor of a pair is updated, while the other microprocessor in the pair continues to service the host ports for the pair with little impact to performanceEnables remote firmware update capability independent of host connection topologyFirmware executes on microprocessors on CHIPs and ACPs (SVP and environmental functions also have some firmware).A CHIP has multiple processor modules. Each module has 2 microprocessors.The requirement for online update is that one microprocessor on a module gets updated while the other microprocessor continues to operate the host ports being served by both microprocessors.Because of the options that exist for how the firmware gets updated, the actual updates may occur from between 1 microprocessor in a cluster at a time (which would be one microprocessor on one CHIP) to half of the microprocessors in the entire cluster at a time (which is half of the microprocessors on all the CHIPs in one cluster).Online firmware update works with every connection configuration instead of requiring redundant connections. Therefore, firmware updates can be done remotely without a visual inspection of the machine.XP Next Gen enables a simpler online firmware update capability by eliminating the need for redundant host paths in the SAN or direct FC connections to hosts. This makes it possible to provide firmware updates remotely without complicated site qualification audits.Microcode update usually requires 5-10 minutes of time to complete.HostPortMicroprocessorHostPortMicroprocessorHostPortMicroprocessorHostPortMicroprocessorBefore Update1st Processor Update2nd Processor UpdateAfter Update
104BatteryInternal environmentally friendly nickel-hydride batteries allow the XP Next Gen to continue full operation for up to one minute when the AC power is lost. During this minute all the disk drives continue to operate normally.When duration of the power loss is longer than one minute, the XP Next Gen executes either the De-stage Mode or Backup Mode, protecting data for up to 48 hours.The choice of De-stage vs. Backup mode has dependencies.If the array has 2 ACP pairs or less and no external storage, either mode can be chosen.If external storage is connected or there are 3 or more ACP pairs, then Back-up mode must be used.The Auto-Power-On switch choices of behavior are: automatic restart or manual intervention restart for sites that want to be sure the power has become stable before restarting operations.Using an external “uninterruptible power supply” (UPS) can continue operation for as long as the UPS can supply power.

Asynchronous copy volume updates ensure primary application performance is not adversely affected. With XP Next Gen, space efficient snapshot local copy will be available in addition to the existing full-copy/clone capability.ProblemSeveral workloads or processes may require the same set of data across multiple applications. However, in order to run one application, the “competing” application cannot be run and is therefore unavailable. A simple example of this is the backup of a database. To ensure a coherent database backup, all online transactions need to be halted. The database is therefore unavailable during this backup process.SolutionHP Business Copy XP provides a solution by supporting multiple copies of the production data. (Up to nine full-copy or 32 snapshot/space-efficient concurrent copies). Each copy of the data can be used for various purposes—backup, new application testing, or data warehousing loading—without any disruption to the primary application and primary data, and most importantly, all without any disruption to your business operations. At the same time, you will be creating faster implementation of new requirements and capabilities so that your business will succeed.Additional noteMay be used in conjunction with Continuous Access XP to maintain multiple copies of critical data at local and remote sites. Note: Continuous Access XP is only supported with Data Protector on HP-UX servers. Both HP Data Protector and VERITAS NetBackup products have been tightly integrated with HP Business Copy XP to provide Zero Downtime and Split-Mirror Backup solutions for the HP Surestore XP disk arrays on multiple server platforms.Can the Primary volume be resynced from a Business Copy?YesCan a full physical Primary volume be created from a Business Copy?

110Business Copy XP Full copy vs. Snapshot There are pros/cons to using either Full copy or Snapshot:Full-CopyBecause an independent copy is made when a clone is created, any activity against that copy do not affect the primary data from which it was created. And in comparison to Snapshots, where a copy-on-write operation must be completed before primary/snapshot-common data can be overwritten, Write activity against cloned primary data is accomplished unencumbered by local mirroring activities.Clones are storage intensive – an equal amount of storage capacity must be provisioned for each primary data source copied.Clones are most useful when performance concerns are paramount (when unfettered access to primary or mirror image data must be insured) or when a completely independent local copy image is required (e.g. for recovery from disk implementations).Snapshot/Space-efficientBecause only differential data must be additionally committed to disk, Snapshots can be very storage capacity efficient. For primary or mirror data that is not updated very frequently or very much, incremental capacity consumption can be very low. Due to the logical/metadata nature of snapshots, many more concurrent copies can be created and managed.A Read operation of a Snapshot image can impact I/O operations to the primary dataset if the read data resides on the primary volume – and potentially contend with whatever operations that are continuing on that volume.A Write operation of a Snapshot image can also impact I/O operations to the primary dataset if the data to be written resides on the primary volume. That data must be copied over to the snapshot pool so as to preserve the data integrity of the primary volume.A Write operation of a Primary image can be impacted if Snapshots of that image are being maintained. Any data that is required to maintain integrity of a snapshot image must be copied over to the snapshot pool before the write operation can be performance so as to preserve the data integrity of the primary volume.Snapshots are most useful when cost/performance issues are paramount. They are even more practical/appropriate for low I/O activity environments, where Snapshot maintenance does not unduly impact primary data I/O operations.CnFutureCnC1C1ProsSpace efficient – only the delta data consumes extra spaceMore concurrent images (32 per Primary)ConsPerformance impact – Snapshot Read impacts primary dataVirtual Snapshot Image – Copy shares data with PrimaryHeavy Write environments reduce efficiencyBest for…Low cost/performanceLow Write/Read environmentsProsIsolates primary data from Copy Read/Write performance impactFull speed Copy Read/Write accessConsCopy requires full amount of storageFewer Images (9 Per Primary)Best for…High performance requirementsHeavy Primary-Write/Copy-Read datasetsRecover-from-copy implementations

Using it’s unique Journal-based replication technology, it enables a single volume to replicated to two distinct arrays or a single volume to be cascaded to two distinct arrays (see other slide).Journal-based replication results in better remote link bandwidth utilization. Replication operations consume less bandwidth and therefore allow for relatively lower bandwidth link capacity to be deployed for such a solution.At First Release8,191 pairs will be supportedXP Next Gen, XP1024, and XP128 supportedAt Second Release16,383 pairs will be supportedXP512 supportedmetromirrordatacontinentalmirror

116Continuous Access XP Journal vs. Continuous Access XP Extension RemoteCopyPrimary14Primary1RemoteJNLHP StorageWorks Continuous Access XP Journal can be compared and contrasted with traditional Continuous Access XP Extension (asynchronous) operation:CA XP Journal architecture is uniquely suited for one-to-many or one-to-one-to-one configurations. CA XP Async can only facilitate one-to-one configurations.With CA XP Journal, update data (in the form of the journal) is stored on traditional disk, while CA XP Async queues change data in array cache. This means that CA XP MS can be more tolerant of high or fluctuating workload environments where tracking/recording or update data can ‘fall behind’ primary data operations. Much more capacity in the form of disk can be provisioned to store such data with CA XP Journal and, thus, forms a more resilient ‘buffer’ for remote copy operations.With CA XP Journal, the journaled data consists of track-level change information. When the remote site journal ‘reads’ changes on the primary site journal, multiple track-level changes can be aggregated and retrieved . With CA XP Extension (Async) , transaction must be replicated across the remote link on an I/O by I/O basis. Depending on the application/database environment, such an ‘atomic’-level replication scheme can be very inefficient.Data3cachecache3224DataCopyJNLRemote2ndCopy43JNLCA XP JournalCA XP Extension (using Sidefiles)Update data (Journal) is stored on DiskRemote side initiates updatesEnables logical 1:2, 1:1:1 configurationsStrengthsUpdates very efficient, less bandwidth requiredProvides hi-capacity lower cost disk-based update data trackingBest for…Multi-Site implementationsUpdate data (Sidefile) is stored in CachePrimary side initiates updates1:1 configurations onlyStrengthsPotential for better data currencyBest for…1:1 implementations

From that copy image, a local copy is paired/created on the Hot Standby Site array using Business Copy XP. On a ongoing basis, the local Business Copy image does not represent a logically consistent image of its parent volume. In order to obtain such a consistent image, the local copy image must be ‘split’ from the parent image, creating a point-in-time image of the parent. That local copy image can then be copied asynchronously to the Contingency Site XP array using Continuous Access XP Extension (Async.) Because the Hot Standby Site local copy represents a point-in-time image, the Contingency Site remote copy image can, at best, only be current with this image. In the meantime, the Hot Standby Site local copy falls behind the Primary Site/Volume, with data currency of the Contingency Site remote mirror being compromised. This operation is highly coordinative in nature, with the local image on the Hot Standby Site having to be continuously split and resynched with it’s parent volume.With HP StorageWorks CA XP Journal cascaded solutions, all replication activities can happen in real-time, without compromising data currency or posing a process/solution risk.PrimaryDWDMSecondaryTertiary2ndJournalJournalWANSecondaryPrimaryDWDMTertiaryFutureJournalJournalWANContinuous Access XPsynchronous mirror<100kmContinuous Access XP Extensionasynchronous mirrorunlimited distancePrimary SiteHot Standby SiteContingency Site

You and your staff only need to learn a single user interface, reducing the learning curve and increasing usage of the tool. It’s web-based so you can monitor your storage resources any time, from anywhere with a web browser. Using the web, your storage expert can participate in problem resolution across multiple installations or easily train junior staff. The tabular user interface in HP Command View XP gives you access to information quickly, and the graphical representations of your storage resources reduce the amount of time your staff will spend troubleshooting problems.The Command View User Interface is being used by enterprise, modular, tape and virtualization products. In the future, HP will be merging these solutions to enable management of all these products and services from a single management console.A clear differentiator contained within Command View is Path Connectivity. This module provides customers with a series of reports detailing and configurations, connections and paths being used by hosts, switches into the XP array. This module eliminates the need for the customer to maintain their own binder with printed reports that they have to manually update. Command View updates the configuration automatically eliminating this tedious task. Path Connectivity also provides diagnostic capabilities for the fibre channel connection between hosts and the XP. This feature will identify if a particular connection has begun to degrade and then provide diagnostic information to speed up the troubleshooting process by identifying potential causes.Command View XP runs on a Windows 2000 or Windows 2003 management station.

LUN Configuration Manager contains three applications in a single easy-to-use tool that launches directly from the HP Command View XP user interface. LUN Management lets you add or delete paths, set the host mode, set and reset the command device, and configure Fibre Channel ports. LU Size Expansion (LUSE) lets you create volumes that are larger than standard volumes. Volume Size Configuration (VSC) allows configuration of custom size volumes that are smaller than normal volumes—improving data access. Security Manager is your LUN security watchdog that gives you continuous, real-time, I/O-level data access control of your XP array. It allows you to restrict the availability of a single LUN or group of LUNs to a specified host or group of hosts. Secured LUNs become inaccessible to any other hosts connected to the array. Unauthorized hosts no longer have access to data that is off-limits.HP LUN Configuration Manager XP allows a system administrator to set up and configure LUNs and assign them to ports.Additionally there are two programs that allow LUNs to be created which are smaller and larger than the available open emulation types. For example, many smaller LUNs can be combined to form a single large LUN using LUN size expansion (LUSE), which is important in environments where there are restrictions on the total number of LUNs supported.Custom-size volumes are smaller than the standard emulation types and can be easily created using Open Systems Custom Volume Size (OCVS). This is important when LUNs may need to be downsized in capacity to avoid wasting disk space. A good example here is when there is a need to create a command device for an XP application.This sample screen shot shows part of the process involving LUN setup and shows a table mapping SCSI ID, and LUN number, volume and emulation type.HP Surestore Secure Manager XP restricts access to LUNs or groups of LUNs to a specific host or group of hosts by checking every I/O. Permissions to access data can be changed on-the-fly with no downtime.Create LUN groups and WWN groups to simplify the configuration and management of data.Integrated into HP Command View and accessible from the same management station.Security is enabled at the port level for flexible deployment with all host server environments supported by the XP disk array family.New drag and drop capability integrated into CommandView.

We expect them to expose this functionality through HDS’s HighCommand device manager.Note: XP128/1024 LUN Configuration & Secure Manager functionality is bundled together as a single product. For legacy systems, LUN Configuration Manager and Secure Manager XP are used by customers. Both products provide the same functionality level; however, it is bundled slightly differently for the XP128/1024.Under volume management, customers can group LUNs – even if they are not concatenated providing more flexibility as customers do not need a free list of LUNs – they can just pick and choose available LUNs.
127Performance Advisor XP Featuresreal-time data gathering and analysissystem view of all resourcesflexible event notification and large historical repositoryBenefitsidentify performance bottlenecks before they impact businesshelps maintain maximum array performanceprecise integration eliminates “blame storming” across systems, database and storage administratorsCollect, monitor, and display real-time performanceHP StorageWorks Performance Advisor XP is a web-based application providing real-time collection and monitoring of your XP disk arrays. HP Performance Advisor XP collects data on CHIP & ACP utilization, and sequential and random reads/writes and I/O rates at each LDEV. No need to worry that your XP resources are not performing XP resources are not performing up to expectations. Its performance alarm and notification capabilities will keep you ahead of any problems.Collects data on a real-time basis, making it easy to see up-to-date and current performance patterns. (Some competing products collect data only on a sporadic basis, several times a day, making their data stale and dated.)Can be accessed by a tab on the Command View (CV) screen. By clicking the Performance Advisor tab, you automatically click the PA URL and start the PA application, saving administrator time and effort. Alternatively, Performance Advisor XP can run as a completely standalone application with its own GUI.Performance Advisor is installed on a PC-based management station (it can be on the same station that CV is installed on), and multiple arrays and multiple hosts can be examined from the same station. Select one array and look at all the hosts attached to it. Or select one host and look at all the array components. This makes it easy to see which hosts are imposing the heaviest workload on the XP disk array.Alert thresholds can be set to send alarms when the threshold has been reached to warn you that attention may be needed or workloads are approaching a critical stage where you may need to take some action to head off a rash of user complaints.VantagePoint Operations (OpenView performance monitor) can access the same performance data that is collected by Performance Advisor.Precise (a third-party Oracle performance optimization tool) can access the same data generated by Performance Advisor and solve database processing bottlenecks.Data from up to 8000 LUNs can be displayed very quickly in one PA window. It takes only two minutes to display this large amount of data, even though it is unlikely you would want to view that many LUNs at one time.Up to 2 GB of historical performance data can be stored making it easy to analyze trends (a leading competitor stores only 500 MB).Additional notes:Flexibility to view “many-to-many” hosts, arrays, LUNs, or components works with Windows 2000/NT, HP-UX, SUN, IBM AIX, Linux, (mainframes soon)Event notification by to pager or PC or VPO consoleWeb-based integration with HP Command View XP
128Boost performance by redirecting I/O requests to the cache Cache LUN XPFeaturesstores critical data in the XP array cacheuser configurable, easy to usefast file access and data transferscalableBenefitsspeeds access to mission critical dataprovides access to critical data such as database indices in nanoseconds rather than millisecondsBoost performance by redirecting I/O requests to the cacheHP StorageWorks Cache LUN XP lets you reserve areas of cache memory on your HP StorageWorks XP disk array to store frequently accessed information. You’ll see improved file access times and faster data transfers. Cache-resident data is accessed in nanoseconds instead of milliseconds for both read and write I/O operations.HP Cache LUN redirects I/O requests from the XP array disk drives to the XP array cache memory to boost performance for frequently accessed data. Simple to implement with HP Command View XP integration, and transparent to the array operation, performance gains are immediate. You can cache up to 1024 volumes for the ultimate in efficiency.HP Cache LUN is the answer for LUNs that are heavily accessed like index files or database logs. When you want to use the cache for something else, destage the data back to its original location. Once the “hot” data is cache resident, it is accessed in nanoseconds rather than in milliseconds. Performance improvements occur immediately.Increase cache memory before running HP Cache LUN XP to avoid degradation when accessing non-cached data.

130Non-disruptive volume migration for performance optimization Auto LUN XPFeaturesoptimizes storage resourcesmoves high-priority data to underutilized volumesidentifies volumes stressed under high I/O workloadcreates a volume migration planmigrates data across different disks or RAID levelsBenefitsimproves array performance and reduces management costs by automatically placing data in highest performing storage (cache, RAID 1, RAID 5)Non-disruptive volume migration for performance optimizationHP StorageWorks Auto LUN XP provides automatic monitoring and load balancing of your HP StorageWorks resources. HP Auto LUN XP compares disk array LUN utilization to limits set by you. It even proposes a data and volume migration plan so that hot spots and other potential disk bottlenecks are avoided, providing optimal, load-balanced performance.HP Auto LUN XP analyzes the current array operation and uses its knowledge about the data layout on the array to suggest how best to relocate data on the XP disk array to improve performance. The administrator then has the option to say “yes” or “no” before any data is moved according to the plan generated by Auto LUN. It works in several discrete phases, reports on its findings, generates an action plan, but doesn’t move anything on the array until you give it your command.Benefits include:Keeps highly accessed data on higher performance disk drive groups.Migrates across different disks or RAID levels for better performance.Shorter random I/Os (2k-4k) may be better suited for storage on smaller, faster disk spindles. Under certain circumstances, RAID 1 may be faster than RAID 5, etc.Simple, easy-to-use operation:Easy-to-follow menusUp to 90 days of history are stored and usable reports are generated. Data can be exported to Excel for further graphing and charting.Moving volumes is easy as the data is copied on the source volume to the target volume. Then, host access is transferred to the target volume to complete the migration.At first release4096 pairs are supportedAt second release8191 pairs are supportedHigh CapacityDisks73 GBPolicy-basedLUN Migration36GBHigh PerformanceDisks

We are currently working on HP Auto Path XP for Linux and for HP-UX for future releases. The HP-developed products will work with the XP disk arrays as well as the VA family of arrays, thus providing flexibility for SANs that incorporate both products. In addition, we sell an HDS-developed Auto Path XP product for AIX. This one works only with the XP disk arrays.Note: We also have an NT product from Hitachi, which was placed on blind CPL in June to encourage orders on the HP-developed NT product. This product also supports SCSI failover.Sun Solaris support is provided only on a business need basis through the NSSO big deal escalation process.To date, Windows NT and 2000 have supported a limited "SCSI Reservation Protocol" that is not fully optimized for Clustered Servers using Fibre Channel Storage.The SCSI Reservation Protocol must be "re-distributed" every time an I/O attempt is not properly executed causing performance problems, specifically with I/O path load-balancing.HP is modifying the XP firmware and HP's I/O Path failover software, HP Auto Path XP, to support the "Persistent Reservation Protocol."Persistent Reservations support is built into the XP128 and XP1024 firmware and will be built into all HP Auto Path XP software, allowing HP's I/O path failover solution to support "dynamic load balancing" in MSCS Windows NT and 2000 environments as well as Serviceguard for HP-UX and Serviceguard for Linux environments. HP is the 1st in the industry to have this capability.
