Today’s Fibre Channel SANs are tasked with reliably delivering huge amounts of data with almost zero latency in an environment with a large variance of end device capabilities. Fibre Channel is a lossless network protocol, but what are the ramifications? What is considered a good SAN design and what are best practices? What situations can lead to suboptimal performance? How can a device that is not performing well affect the performance of devices even on different parts of the SAN? Can a device that is returning credits without delay affect the SAN just like a device that is returning credits slowly? For answers, join the FCIA on February 6th for our live webcast “Fibre Channel Performance: Congestion, Slow Drain, and Over-Utilization, Oh My!”
In this webcast, our experts will provide answers to these questions and more where you’ll learn:
- How Fibre Channel archives a lossless data delivery
- The definition of “slow drain“
- Basic slow drain indications and what they mean
- “Over” Utilization – How a device that isn’t “slow drain” by the typical definition can affect a SAN in a similar fashion as a slow drain device
- How to prevent, Identify, and resolve performance problems
