Ad hoc Analysis An engineer will do this analysis together with you. There is no further preparation from our side The content of this analysis is: Health Check for SVC and Storwize
To conduct this kind of quick analysis, BVQ has to collect at least 4 days of data. Please send us an email for scheduling support mailto:email@example.com
Complete health check analysis This analysis needs two days of preparation and is going much deeper into other sections.
Capacity and usage analysis for investigation of the following points: Free space in the managed disk groups. Is the performance of your managed disk groups suitable to support 100% capacity usage of the groups? Is striping in managed disk groups well balanced? Are all servers connected correctly?
Storage Tier analysis: in what kind of storage should be invested when capacity has to be expanded? Often it is astonishing that often high performance capacities have not to be increased. Just shift low performing volumes to cheaper storage and invest in this class for more capacity! This analysis will not provide a list of volumes because things can change. It will give you a more precise knowledge how you should invest in the future
Storage efficiency analysis How well is your Thin Provisioning and/or compression working?
Easy Tier analysis How effective is Easy Tier working in your environment?
You can install Teamviewer on the BVQ server if this server can be accesed via the Internet. In this way we can access the BVQ server directly.
You can install Teamviewer on any system (laptop, workstation) which can run a RDP session to access the BVQ server. This is done if the BVQ server is in a lab environment and not accessible via the Internet. The BVQ server will then be accessed via the open RDP session on this workstation.
To connect to your system the ID and password is needed. The password normally changes on every start of Teamviewer. SVA has a full license for Teamviewer.
Snipet - Node Port Analysis - overloaded node port It is a long time ago, that I added an analysis video to the wiki.
The following is a very nice situation where we had to find the reason for a very high load on a node port.
