A large number of metrics are available that characterize performance latencies. and many other counters critical to understanding and evaluating performance. Data can be viewed in the Centralized Management Console as counters. Many of the same performance metrics available for volumes are present but now broken down by each tier for individual volumes and storage systems. page size. graphically via charts and can also be exported via log files (csv files) and SNMP traps. The Adaptive Optimization monitor is modeled after the cluster Performance Monitor and located directly under the Performance Monitor.43 Start the Adaptive Optimization Performance Monitor L9 –11 . Adaptive Optimization adds a new set of performance and usage counters to the HP StoreVirtual Centralized Management Console. The “Adaptive Optimization” monitor is accessed under the “Performance Monitor” node in the left-hand pane of the CMC for clusters that are AO enabled. 1. IOPs. Each console can be opened in its own separate windows for easy side-by-side analysis and comparison.HP P4000 StoreVirtual Adaptive Optimization Exercise 4: Monitor Adaptive Optimization The StoreVirtual Performance Monitor provides real-time performance monitoring of storage clusters down to 5 second intervals. 13.

Administration.  Percent Volume Space All Tiers Used % of all tiers that volume is currently consuming  Percent Volume Space Tier 0 Used % of volume that currently resides on Tier 0  Percent Volume Space Tier 1 Used % of volume that currently resides on Tier 1  Volume Space All Tiers Used Total physical capacity consumed by volume in GB   Volume Space Tier 0 Used Total physical capacity of Tier 0 consumed by volume in GB Volume Space Tier 1 Used Total physical capacity of Tier 1 consumed by volume in GB These capacity amounts show the amount of physical space consumed after taking into account the Network RAID type used. 5 GB consumed in Tier 0 means another 5 GB would be consumed in Tier 1 to hold the replicated Network RAID 10 copy. For example. this equates to 5 GB of physical capacity consumed within Tier 0 for the volume. the total physical capacity of the cluster consumed would be 100 GB. as well as each volume by tier.HP StoreVirtual P4000 SAN Configuration. Due to Preferred Page technology described earlier in the information. Congratulation you have successfully completed the LAB! L9 –12 Rev.43 . The following list of capacity metrics show the information available. These include capacity utilization of each tier. if a volume shows 50 GB of consumption at the application server and Network RAID 10 is being used for the volume on the cluster. Use Adaptive Optimization volume capacity metrics to view utilization Volume level metrics available in the Adaptive Optimization console. If the Percent Volume Space Tier 0 Used is 5 percent. The report shows the data movement indicated with the Blue and red line (Tier0 and Tier1). 13.
