  • Fibre Channel or ISCSI for SAN

    We have a SAN that is mission critical to the business. Performance and availabilty are key. I have read that I should lean towards fibre channel for this versus ISCSI but was curious if anyone has seen a noticable difference.

  • Performance irregularities on Hitachi AMS2100?

    We are seeing a strange mix of high cache write pending in conjunction with very high front end processor utilization which we believe typically do not occur together. Has anyone else seen this or other performance issues on this storage array?

    We are running HP SANs. I'm providing a single link using their LH SFP from one computer room to another, with approx 3.4 db loss on both legs, but I'm seeing errors associated with too much light. When do you use attenuators?
